Ever Wonder How Gemstones Are Created?

Have you ever wondered how a beautiful gemstone is created? Gem cutting or gem faceting as it is properly called is a mystery to most people. There are several steps involved in faceting (cutting) a beautiful gem. Generally the more facets a gem has, the more steps there are in faceting it. Great care and precision is needed to turn a piece of gemstone rough into a beautiful gem. It usually takes a minimum of three cutting and polishing steps per facet. Here I have two beautiful Amethyst gemstones with full of luster and excellent cuts from our cutter in Thailand.
