Making a Faceted Gemstone


Faceting is the art of precision grinding & polishing a transparent or translucent gemstone using a faceting machine.  By placing the stone on the faceting arm and changing the angle as you grind & polish you create many facets on the stone. As light passes through the polished faces it refracts creating a brilliant,sparkle,effect.

Rough Quartz(7)Beryl(7-8)ruby/sapphire(9) and Diamond(10) both natural and synthetic are used for faceting.
