Will it cut well? In this cabochon tutorial I have an interesting but odd shaped piece that I think will cut a nice cabochon. It is a bi-colour piece of rough with a deep rich blue and a golden pattern with flashes of green. It does have a couple of bubbles but nothing I think will be a problem.
It would be best as a cushion shape, but I think it will be an oval. Have a look to see what happens as I cut it.
As usual, I’m using lapidary techniques to cut and shape this cabochon, but using a kiln to do the final polish.
If you have any questions, please ask them as comments on the video and I’ll do my best to answer you.
