I recently finished this lot of really nice quality crystal (or 'water') opals from rough I obtained in Mexico 15 years ago.( Making them highly stable!) (1) Heart shaped one-2.5 carats, 8x9mm (7) Ovals-1/2 carats each and measure 4x6mm $100 or swap for large glsss-filled heat treated ruby

As large as possible and still be good looking, ie: balanced color spread and some translucence...
