I've got a chunk of cuptrite from Onjanga, Namibia I got a few years back. Somethining like 15 g corner of a larger crystal.
When I was more active in gemology (hobby, not pro) I saw some of Jay Medici's stones and loved them- he does amazing work on difficult stones. I saw him at a local rock show in Michigan and inquired about cutting, but back then his 6 month lead time seemed a bit much. I do believe he is well-known.

Time has passed, and I'd like to get this rough cut into the glorious gem I know is inside. But I lost his card and now can't seem to find any way to contact Jay, and I don't know any other cutters I would entrust it to.

So I turn here- I know both hobby and pro cutters drop in occasionally. So I appeal to you all and your acquaintances:
Who cuts such material (well), and would they be interested in taking such a commission?

Reply in response, or let me know by PM (they have that here, don't they?)

I don't drop by very often any more so I may not see a reply immediately.

Looking at, learning about, "investing" in, aesthetically pleasing minerals, sometimes even when I should be working. I'm an intellectual property attorney- patents, copyright, trade secrets ... drop me a line if I can help you out.
