    I have been buying rough from OFM for over a year now and I have always been pleased with the product. The quality of the videos is top notch! You get a good solid idea of what you are buying. I have cut some absolutely gem quality "whoppers" from the parcels I have gotten from OFM. Don't think twice about buying here......OFM is the place to go!!!!!! Pictures coming soon of finished pieces!!!

    What can i say !

    I can’t recommend OFM enough, M is superb, knows his stuff and will bend over backwards to help you. The wins I get in the auctions come sealed up in a bag with all the info, so if you forget about it when you do get around to working the stone you know all about it! Now my top guy for opal and should be yours too.
