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.
