Very nice slab.  I would just leave it as a display -- too nice to cut!

I bought some of the Juniper Ridge opal a while back now (years) that I was going to try faceting with.  Unfortunately, most all of it crazed within no time.  Since this one is not crazed and looks stable, I'd just leave it as it is.
