Black magik, Love this material
« on: February 11, 2018, 03:53:43 AM »

Super exited, just heard that supplier is going to cut more slabs from the rock I got this stuff from, AND have a chance to get some more.

Black Australian Jade seems to work very well for me. Does not fracture easily, no yellow burn-marks :) , and in comparison to other jade polishes rather well quickly.
Only did one a year since I got that material, but now having pieces side by side its pretty obvious to me that I like working it.

Despite of obvious faults, somehow the organization gave me gold medal on this first try.

2015 Unfortunately the left horn came off just as it was ready to wear.

Looking forward to more of the same, Kurt

Half of any battle is feeling good about what you are doing  so it's very good you have a rough that makes you happy. Have fun.
