How do glassblowers encase opals

Home Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Information How do glassblowers encase opals....

The glassblower can push the opal into the glass, drop the opal in a tube and suck the air out.  A good blower will make sure there are no air bubbles around the opal.  Cut opals can be hard to completely remove the air, so it requires time and dedication.
