Stone Cutting January 16th

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.

Cabochons, 10 cabs cut 1.16.12
