  1. Deb, totally interesting! What does your husband do with the gemstones? Does he set them in jewelry? That's a big stone. Nicely done! Come over link up and vote in today's BoTB, too! Have a fototastic day, my friend!

    1. He still works 9 to 5, so right now he just does this as a hobby. Maybe in a few years he will do more....

  8. What a treasure! I've never seen a stone cut in that way. Amethyst is my birthstone, and I love its purple hues, ranging from pale to almost-black. I hope you'll post more of your husband's beautiful creations.

    1. He gives most of his stones away. He keeps some for a collection he occasionally takes to schools.
