Description

Slocum Opal is a man-made Opal that was developed in the 1970’s by John Slocum of Rochester, Michigan.  His creations were among the first Opal simulants available on the market.  He used a secret process that was lost when he died.  It is harder and more durable than natural Opal, and each pretty stone is different.  We do have a selection of other pieces as well, but this is old stock, never to be produced again!  This piece measures approximately 16 mm x 14 mm, is 4 mm thick, and weighs about 6.7 carats.  It is cabochon cut and may not fit into a standard jewelry mounting but would be beautiful if custom wire-wrapped!  Ships USPS Priority Mail.  SO-04.
