About Mt. Mist
6 Bur Set

  These two books cover all facets of gemcarving from tool selection and fabrication to choosing gemstones, techniques for carving and polishing and research into carving styles of American Masters. Nowhere else is there this much information on Gemstone design and fabrication.

  If you don't have these, you're missing a lot of information.

• 2003 edition designed for Jewelry makers who want to carve their own stones

American Lapidary - Designing the Carved Gemstone

Studying over 20 World Renowned American Gemcarvers and Artists and their styles, Henry Hunt delves into Designing your gemstone, covering Angular Designs, Curvilinear designs, Lathe and Milling work, Lamination and Combinations, and he finishes by exploring all kinds of tool design from diamond grits to photography gear.

Much more information than my report suggests.
