that's a nice peice of serpentine; what did you have to use to polish such a soft stone??? I have a 3 lb peice of semi transparent; its exactly like our BC nephrite with the black inclusions, excepting the hardness, that my son found while digging drainage ditches in Vancouver.

Polished with diamond, while I usually use tinoxide for serpentine when cabbing.. it didn't work for faceting.

At it again! Yup, this time a bicolour citrine that needed a re-cut - it had a chipped girdle which needed repair.
Ended up at 5.56 cts.

Good repair, cant even notice where the chip was.
I'm going to try and cab, since I dont facet, a rainbow sunstone. If it works I'll enter it in the monthly contest.

Lets start with a topaz, around 3 cts. Included, used it to wear in a new lap.



And a oregon sunstone, 6.7 cts or so. Its a tad more yellow in real life.
