Title: Faceting Class or Tutor in Thailand
Post by: tndiehard on July 01, 2014, 08:28:32 pm
I'm a Newbie and I'm looking for a Faceting Class or some one with a Faceting Machine who would be willing to Tutor Moi.

I stay in Pattaya but could probably visit any of the main  Hubs.  I have been to the Market in Chanthaburi and Plan a trip to Bangkok to see JTC the Big Market and the street where the Backpackers stay that has all the settings.

I've heard about other places but I'm researching.  If you come to Pattaya or are going to the Bangkok show give me a yoddle and I'll buy the first beer.  Thanks Gerry

Moving this to the faceting forum, you'll possibly find someone there who could help.

I've seen gem identifying courses such as how to detect for heat treatment and such... Also lamberts cut a lot of stones there. You could go talk to them , my friend knows the owner . I've messaged him for the number, he will prob take a day or two to get back , so will let you know..:)

There is some institution that teaches gemmology, whoms name I forgot, but google should know.
They don't teach cutting, but might know someone who does.
