Welo Opal Rough Parcels

   Welo opal is amazing material. Easy to cut and sometimes even clear enough to facet. The one thing to be sure of when buying this material is it's best to buy it dry. Buy it like you would buy Mexican opal. Our material has been out of any water for over 3 years, so most if any crazing has already happened .      All of our Welo is photographed dry, weighed dry, and sold dry.
