Profound Gilson Opals

Profound Glass was started in beautiful Colorado Springs, CO in the summer of 1996 with the help of Bill D. and Joe C.. During the first 2 years of Profound Glass, Nate spent much of his time learning the art of lampworking from intense experimentation, studying vintage scientific glass blowing books and taking classes with lampworking greats, Kevin O'Grady and Rodger Paramore. In 1997 www.profoundglass.com was created with the gracious help of Hugh and in 1998 "Profound Glass Gallery" opened in downtown Colorado Springs with the generous help of Chris Hock.

Now in Austin Texas, Profound Glass specializes in Gilson® created opal and are the largest distributors of created opal in North America. We are staffed by friendly, caring people who want nothing more then to help you, our customers, in any way they can. Profound Glass is proud that every employee is paid a living wage and provided with full health coverage.

Profound Blue Tumbled Mini Opals

Our blue mini tumbled opal pieces are transparent with a light blue base and flahes of blue and green fire. These mini size tumbled stones are perfect for tight places and tiny accents to make people double back for a second look. The size of these "mini" opals varies quite a bit from batch to batch, but on average you can expect about 18-30 pieces per gram, with each piece being between approximately 2mm and 4mm. Keep in mind that the pieces can look more transparent than blue when they are this small.
