Although our workshop suffered damage during the end of April flooding, we're pleased to announce that our classes and open shop have now resumed.
Our speaker for the June 3rd meeting is Richard Meszler who has studied and used jade in many of the cabochons he's cut.
Although not a gemologist, his interest in the material has led him to learn a few things about the stones.
Jade has two forms - nephrite and jadeite. During the talk he will discuss some of the differences between the two, talk about his experiences and experiments for cutting and polishing each type and show many examples of rough material and polished cabochons.
