Beautiful.  My friend Mia cut a large one that I bought off her website.  It's this giant oval.  I was able to find oval beads of the same material, so eventually here I'll have a creation using that cab and beads.

I think you need to set this one in Silver Randy.  I think it would frame this one nicely.  Hang it from a nice chain.   :D

I like that stuff. Always looks good and takes a good polish.

Ran into a guy a couple of years ago that had a cargo container full of rough on his land back in Wyoming. He offered me a barrel of rough, but I never took him up on it. I should have! Doh.

Turritella was the first cab that I cut. I really like the stuff. You are right, it polishes up pretty good. Very nice cab! Eric.
