Slocum Opal Cabochon, SO-07


1 in stock

SKU: SO-07 Category:


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 13 mm x 12 mm, is 2.5 mm thick, and weighs about 3.6 carats.  It is cabochon cut and MAY fit into a standard jewelry mounting but would also be beautiful for a custom piece!  Ships USPS Priority Mail.  SO-07.
