How to make a cabochon – Lapidary 101


Cabochon cut stones are very popular in the world of jewelry.

It is a great way to show off the beauty in agates, Jaspers, and other gemstones.

In this video, I show you how to cut and polish a piece of jasper/agate.

I start with an 80 grit wheel and work the stone until I reach the 3000 grit wheel and then I will polish the stone.

I am cutting with a Cabking machine which is available on our website https://gotcharocks.com/cabking-lapid
