Opal chat with Brantford Lapidary and Mineral Society

Opal chat time! Let’s change it up and dive deep into everything you’ve wanted to know about opal this week.

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to do a Zoom call with the Brantford Lapidary and Mineral Society in Canada to chat about all things opal. If you flock to opal like a bee to honey and don’t mind almost an hour of my voice, you’re going to love this!

We had a great time diving deep into opal types, opal cutting, and special techniques. After a brief history of Black Opal Direct and my cutting career so far, we delve into Australian opal types and examples. Then, onto the juicy part! We cut an opal together and you get to watch my whole process in real-time.

Get yourself a snack, a cup of tea (or a glass of wine) and enjoy this opal chat.
