Just received from New Zealand! Don't know yet how to work it, but I'll sure have a try!
Any advises?

Really nice! Love them all! Looking forward to see what you'll make with it!
A friend from NZ promised me some Kauri Gum, have you an idea how to work it?

I'd love to win the challenge, but I am not sure, then you'd ship all those nice stones to New Caledonia!!!
Anyway it is a very kind idea and don't worry we don't have a lot of very nice stone, here, to make some really killer cabs!!!!

We have some limestone, really looking like that jasper, here in New Caledonia. I always try to cut both way, to see what I can get. Both your harts are very nice and you'd have missed one if not cutting the other way!!! Well done!

the arrow came out really nicely!
For the other 2 the contrast is not easy to be seen on pictures but I am sure they are really great in natural!
Thanks for sharing!

I am sure all will be fine at the end, as usual. But to shape a baby is not so easy!
I like the third one, the arrow project.
So I didn't understood on FB, I thought you were not going to be on the forum anymore. Glad it is not the case!

I usually use Araldite Crystal it is a slow setting one and even more it has a high transparency and doesn't turn yellowish.
