Since rhodonite has been the hot topic on the forum lately, here is a 2" cab finished today.

Thought twice about cabbing this with what looks like fractures because they stand out so much.  But they were nicely healed so gave it a whirl. Still not sure I like it.

Don't think you will have a problem selling it, someone will know what to do to incorporate it with something and make a wonderful bracelet or necklace or something.  Good job!

I feel the same way about healed fractures or just natural lines in stones. They bother me. I tend to cut them out, but there are some who like them as natural features of the stone and seem to actively seek out material with those features.
