Lapidary rough

If you have never heard of a lapidary then you may want to learn more about it if you are looking for a fun hobby. If you'd like to become a lapidary then you want to become a gem cutter. It is a person that makes lapidary rough into a beautiful gemstone.

In nature, gems are not found in the same manner that they are found in jewelry. They need to be prepared to look that way. A lot of tools and skill are used to prepare the stone.

When you get lapidary rough you will see a lot of extra material that is around the rock or mineral from when it was mined. A lapidary then uses saws and other tools to mold the rocks and minerals and remove the excess stuff that surrounds it. When a gem is cut well it shines and is very impressive. A gem not cut well will be ugly and dull.

The Lapidary rough should first be sawed by a lapidary. This is to get all of the excess materials off of it. The gem can then be cleaned with water or oil to remove anything left on it during the cutting. The stone will then need to be ground using a grinder. Silicon carbide wheels or diamond impregnated wheels are used to grind it. After that process is done it will need to be sanded to remove scratches and make it shine.

To become a great lapidary you will need to learn all about the different processes that a gem needs to go through to look beautiful. Invest in a great lapidary saw. Then do all of the research that you can so that you can thoroughly understand what it takes to be a great lapidary.
