Recommended Posts

I have been teaching a friend to cab on Saturdays, this is his first cab, set in silver setting and chain, a wedding anniversary present for his wife, he will be moving onto carving next, the stone is from Northern territory Australia, we finished it on 100k diamond.

 

:) Cheers michael B

I will send you a better picture after work, incredible stone, it is also known as Sun Jade in Australia, if you search on google I think you will find an Australian supplier of this stone, you do some incredible work with your beading, you set the benchmark, I could send you a small piece if you want, just send me your details in a private message.

Tell your friend excellent job on his first cab! I loved carving prehnite, soft enough to carve easily, hard enough to polish well. But the kind I worked with didn't have the transparent/translucent quality, just all translucent and more uniform color.

 

I'm sure your buddy will have problem learning to carve with you to help him.
