In this video tutorial, I’ll show how I cut an oval cabochon from some experimental rough material. This material is similar to Jefanite but is basically dichroic glass on a red background.
As I cut this piece you’ll see just how the red cabochon is revealed and in the end, you can share your view of the material and finished cabochon in the video’s comments.
The process involved includes 360 grit diamond wheels and a glass kiln for fire polishing at the end.
I’m using lapidary techniques to cut and shape this cabochon, but using a kiln to do the final polish. The video contains all instructions, including the fire polish schedule.
If you have any questions, please ask them as comments on the video and I’ll do my best to answer you.
