Boulder Opal Rub 001
This is a really nice piece of Boulder Opal that started to be cut into a cabochon, but was not finished (unfinished cut pieces are called rubs). It has lots of beautiful fire on both sides. Weight is 4.1 grams and measurements are 1.25" x 1.55" x 0.1" at widest points.
Many people are afraid to work with Precious Opals because of their intense energies which cause one to raise their vibration so quickly that it can be painful. However, Boulder Opals are Precious Opals that are inclusions in Ironstone. The addition of the Ironstone lends a very grounding energy to the Opal which will mitigate the intensities of its fire.
