The Gem Cutting Process

Mint Garnet Rough

Have you ever wondered what it takes to turn an unassuming little pebble to a brilliant finished gem? This portion of the site is intended to provide a brief and hopefully interesting look at the journey a gem takes from rough rock to finished stone.

As part of the process to transition from the "old" website to this new one, this gem cutting tutorial is being overhauled as well. Unfortunately, it isn't quite ready for "prime time" yet. Until it is completed, please enjoy the original tutorial, which can still be found at the "old" website link below.
