Boulder Opal/Yowah Nuts HELP

I have found some really good stones that I have had cut, problem is they are starting to crumble
I want to set them in some sort resin, can I do this to be used for me, and my kids for pendants, attached are some pics of the starting to crumble
Or where I can send these off to be done?

thanks :)
Fiona

You could google Opticon fracture sealer and see if that will do what you want. I read the instructions but found them unclear.

Apologies for posting a product link but if you go to the listing here and click on the small pdf icon just below the product photo, there is a document we have posted describing how to use Opticon in a bit more relevant way for lapidary.

Might be helpful??

cheers
