Win, Lose or Draw — Welcome to the World of Opal!
Even after decades of buying and cutting opal, I can still get it really wrong.
But that is the risk you take when you work with Opal.
The highs and successes can be exceptionally amazing and the lows are never too far behind.
We are talking about a natural commodity that formed over 110 million years ago (or so they say), it’s allowed to be a little unpredictable.
This video is the perfect example of how unpredictable cutting rough opal can be.
Breaking even ain’t so bad
As you can see by the results, we didn’t win, however, it wasn’t a complete loss.
Breaking even is where we landed and I’m totally okay with that.
We win some and we lose some and sometimes we land in the middle.
It’s how you choose to navigate those losses or turn the losses into an even (if you can).
