Skin to skin Coober Pedy Crystal !
SORRY... this one is SOLD !
(more pics below)
An Andamooka man came into my office this week wanting a fortune for
Andamooka Inlay. Of course I don't blame him because in my opinion it
is the best Inlay material.
The pieces were small and the cost was high
and we finally came to some arrangement and the Inlay material is now
available to our clients.
The interesting thing in the meeting was that
after he made his sale and been paid he offered me the most beautiful
Coober Pedy chunk of opal which weighed 4.4 oz. I nearly fell off my
chair when he told me what he wanted for it, not because it was a huge
price but because it was a small price compared with the true value of
Andamooka people think that every other field is inferior
and that is why the guy had such a reasonable price on his stone. When
the guy had left my office I spoke to 2 of my adult children who have
been in the opal game virtually all their working lives.
Both of them
thought that the stone was worth $1200 per oz which would make the stone
$5,280. But because of the rivalry between Andamooka folk and Coober
Pedy, we are able to offer you this stone for only $3,750.
Now that is
a bargain. It makes a beautiful specimen, it can be cut up into both
gem solids and triplets although it would be a pity to make triplets
from such a beautiful piece. Even some huge gem stones to be cut from
this magnificent opal. There is no saying how long it will last, so if
you are interested we had better hear from you.
Remember to just go to the Order/request page and let us know what you want of this special as soon as possible !
Tell us what you like, we guarantee that you will be satisfied.
That is unless you wait too long... :-(
We look forward to dealing with you.
