Had a fun day cutting cabochons (yesterday). Ended the day with ten finished stones. Seven came from the same slab of heat treated agate. This agate had been heat treated by a flint knapper but he decided not to use the stone to make a point. I liked the variety of color and cut the oval 18x13 mm stones that are on the side and bottom of the large sandstone cab (50 x 30 mm). At the top of the picture are two ruby cabochons from the same crystal found in Franklin, NC. Now to do something with them. Btw, this is also a preview of the February prize drawing. Three of these will be the prize.
