I am a disabled Army Vet, I used to be a combat medic assigned to a Mechanized Infantry unit in Germany. I am married to a Lovely German woman and we have 4 beautiful daughters and 3 rambunctious grand-daughters. After I was discharged from the army I lived in Germany for 10 years . It was hard for me to go from a very active person to not being able to do much because of spinal injuries so a good friend of mine (also an American ex-patriot) suggested that I learn stone cutting from his German wife, her family is made up of people from the Idar Oberstein area which is the stone cutting, diamond mine/jewelry making town in Rheinland Pfalz Germany. Needless to sayI fell in love with cutting gemstones! Especially Koroit Boulder Opal from the Queensland Outback. I am day and night in my workshop cutting my favorite material Koroit Boulder Opal!
Thank you for checking out my Opals!
