Cut matching Mexican Opal cabochons

We were approached by a misician from the local symphony who wanted matching Mexican Opals to be mounted into a violin he was building.


Set of instructions the customer gave
us for cutting the Mexican Opal

He wanted the orange colored piece, shown on the left, cut in half and into 2 matching cabochons cut to the exact specifications which are showen in his documentation.

He wanted the cabochons to have an exact length and width and with sides which were straight up and down. He wanted them domed on top and polished flat bottoms.

Finished matching Mexican Opal cabochons

At left you can see the finished matching Mexican Opal cabochons. As you can see, the sides are straight up and down so that they will fit nicely into the openings which he carved into his violin.
