How Can I Purchase a Stone?
I post stones on Instagram and Tiktok. I primarily post and cut for commission, but occasionally I will post a gem for sale. Message me on any of those platforms and I will send you more information about the stone so you can confirm and pay (Paypal, Zelle). Stones are sold on a first come first serve basis. I can also be reached by WhatsApp and email.
How do I start learning how to facet gemstones?
There are many ways to enter the industry. There are faceting schools, but also free to join lapidary clubs that may have teachers and or machines to try out and use. You can also apprentice at a jewelry store with an in house lapidary. I would recommend joining the group "faceting finds" to find a used machine for sale.
The forum "gemology online" has lots of great information about faceting related trouble shooting as well.
