|Description:||From book: An authoritative introduction to all aspects of lapidary is provided here by Pansy Kraus. She describes the processes, tools, and equipment of each branch of this facinating hobby, helping the reader choose a technique, get started the right way, and determine which tools will work best to achieve specific results. |
Kraus describes the considerable rewards of tumbling rocks, making cabochones, carving gem materials, lapping, cutting spheres, making beads, and faceting. She provides a coherent overview of a vast and complex field, from the elementals of getting started to studio visits with lapidary artists, where we discover what may be possible.
