From Slab to Cab – releasing the hidden beauty in a stone


Cathy Hasson

JoAnn Schultz, Lapidary Club Member, shared her Cabochon-making expertise with these Lapidary Club Members: Cheryl Osburn, Carl and Gerrie Jauhola, Debbie Felker, Paul Barber, Wally Milbrath, Marj Berra, Steve Piepmeier, Joe Caldwell, Jim Herring and Cathy Hasson.

JoAnn showed us how to use a trim saw and grinders to turn a slab of stone into a polished, domed cabochon. The finished gemstone is ready to be set into a pendant, ring, pin, bracelet or to display and admire!

A correction to the March article: The instructor’s name is Kathy Morford! Sorry, Kathy.
