The material I’m using here to cut this cushion cabochon promised something special. The rough had a rich blue colour with flashes of gold and pink. The final stone did not disappoint, though it did end up smaller than expected.
Please ask any questions about this in the video comments. I would really appreciate any 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.
