Practical Geology For The Lapidary Arts

What is that stone you're holding?  Is it a rock, mineral or gem?  Can you use it in your next lapidary project?  Can you turn it into finished jewelry?  

Identifying stones for lapidary is part detective work, part art.  Participants in this two session, eight hour in total course will be provided with all the tools necessary to determine hardness, specific gravity, and other physical and chemical properties.  You will be able to identify samples suitable for making cabochons, faceted stones and other jewelry components.
