Hi,
     Late last week we received an order of Gilson Polished Opals from the USA , all white there is between 18-22 in a bag for 19.00 per bag and they are lovely big polished opals.


You can all the opals we stock on http://www.tuffnellglass.com/contents/en-uk/d321_Gilson_Opals.html#p4361

Yours Sincerely,

Martin

Hi,
    Thanks for your message , I will pop a photo up of them under water which normally gives a really good impressions of what they will be like under glass.

They look lovely. Are they difficult to work with and do they play nicely with soft glass.
Any tips welcome.

Hi,
     They are pretty easy to work with but are for boro use only , they will not work with soft glass . You don't want to be handling them as the grease and salts from your skin will tarnish them so always use tweezers to handle them and if you need too clean them with alcohol after handling.

Encasing them in clear boro tube makes them easier to work with .

Best wishes ,

Pity that they only work with boro but it does remove the temptation.
