Stone Cutting

Stone cutting is one step in the lapidary process. Lapidaries (stone-cutters or gem-cutters) cut, polish, and sometimes facet gemstones for use in jewelry designs or for collectors. Stone cutting can refer to cutting and grinding stones into slabs or other workable segments or the act of cutting facets on stones (also known as faceting). Polishing and buffing are final finishing steps in the lapidary process.
