Faceting ServicesMany people have stones they think may be worthwhile to have a lapidary artist cut, and don't know where to start... especially rockhounds or others who have found crystals or "mined" them in a dig-for-fee site. Others may have stones-especially in hand-me-down jewelry-that are worn and/or chipped; not looking as nice as they used to; these stones can often be recut or repolished. Others have foreign-cut stones they want recut to enhance the stone's optical properties; these stones are often purchased at reasonable rates, and recutting can improve their appearance and value.

A little Faceting HistoryFirst recorded in 1615-25, facet is from the French word facet little face. Faceting is the art of cutting facets, or flat faces, on the geometric shapes of precious and semi-precious gemstones. Faceting improves the appearance of gemstones by facilitating and enhancing their ability to reflect light, creating a dazzling and brilliant sparkling effect.
