After a string of awards you are still likely to find Mac in an ironstone opal stained pair of shorts, sorting opal in dirty water, or cutting the stone whilst being sprayed with dirty water, or bent over his bench, concentrating on wrapping the stone in precious metals, still very down to earth, and with his quicksilver mind mulling over the next project.
