Hi Grant,
Nice cutting. I’m just starting out and wondered if this was a good exercise for a newbie? I heard that polishing quarts will test you patients. Yours looks good. Did it take a long time to polish and what disk did you use?

Also, I know this is a bit off topic, but I like how you displayed the gemstone. Would you mind sharing how you were able to get the tweezers in that shape and how they you secured them? I’m trying to photograph some gems and your setup is just what I’ve been looking for.


Take your love of gemstones
