My name is Scott and I started from a box of rocks I ordered online through Gem Mountain in North Carolina. I felt I hit a jackpot and was hooked. From there I bought a lap machine and started polishing stones, Petoskey Stones are abundant here where I live, but I started to analyze and question how the stone came to be. From there learning about setting the stone and faceting.
I now own a Facetron faceting machine and am on my quest to getting USFG Certified as a cutter. For now I am still reaching for my Novice but feel I am a stone away from that.
Anyways I am glad to be here to learn and want to reach out to anyone who has the same interest in gemstones.
