Just added ten more stones to the gallery.

Or, if you are in Paso Robles this weekend, you can see them in person at my booth at the Rock club show being held at the fairgrounds.

Image is of an ametrine weighing 8.37 cts. which has concave facets decorating the pavilion.

Faceting Demonstration in Paso Robles

Join me this weekend, April 22 and 23, at the Paso Robles event center (Midstate fairgrounds) for the Santa Lucia Rockhounds Annual Rock and Gem Show.

I will have a table there and will be showing off an assortment of unique gemstones which I have faceted which will be available for sale.

Hours are from 10 am - 5 pm Saturday and 10 am - 4 pm Sunday.

If you can't make it this weekend, I expect to be demonstrating faceting at the San Luis Obispo and Orcutt club shows this summer.
