Cutting a Crystal Dichroic Cabochon into an Oval Shape.

Cabochon Tutorial

This material I made some time ago and have cut cabochons from it before, but it’s always an adventure. Sometimes they end up a big non-event, but this one isn’t that bad. Hard to see in the video, but it does have great flashes of colour.

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.
