Lapidary 101 - (Private Class)
Learn 1 on 1 with seasoned pro Dean Chesterman.
In this beginner 3 hour class you will learn to cut a round and oval shape stone.
This is referred to as a Cabochon. A cabochon is a stone that is a highly polished stone. They can take on various shapes, but are finished with a dome. The word Cabochon comes from the French word 'caboche' meaning knob or small dome.
The Art of Lapidary is one of mankind's earliest forms of technology, and can be dated as far back as 1 000 000 million years ago. Advancements really started to take shape in the 1400s. Over the course of hundreds of years refinements have aided in improving the shaping and polishing of stones.
