Here is a picture of Joe’s newest cut sunstone! It’s called a trifoil cut and this stone ended up being almost three-quarters of a carat. I think it has something like 25 cuts total so it isn’t that bad to make but it turns out pretty neat looking!
Joe has an online store dedicated to the stones he has cut and on the main website he has had several of his stones as featured items! Pretty neat! Right now he is working on a sapphire that he picked up awhile ago for something different. James likes to ‘help’ him facet though so sometimes it’s hard to get going unless I take James upstairs to play. He is just totally fascinated with the faceting table and the light and all the parts… pretty much can’t keep his baby hands to himself when it’s out and around 🙂
