Thank you to all in our community for making Christmas special for someone. A few weeks ago we brought you the story of Steiner Florian, a 14-year-old boy who has been opal cutting with sandpaper and leather.
The response was fantastic, and we received so many emails and comments of encouragement. One of our magnificent clients, Joe Barela, of Washington State in the US, kindly sent along some items for Florian to use. The package includes a loupe, scales, Ethiopian opal and other stones to practice on as well as some finished citrine and amethyst. To that, we have added the promised black opal on a dop stick – as well as some rough pieces to practise on.
Thanks to Joe for this wonderful and very generous gift. Steiner is very excited and can’t wait to receive it all. We will be shipping it out shortly via FedEx just in time for Christmas. Good luck and have fun, Steiner!
