What is the art of lapidary?

Lapidary is an artistic and commercial practice that shapes stones, gems, and minerals into jewellery and other decorative items. Depending on the application, this may involve making cabochons, engraving gems, and producing faceted designs. There are several techniques used by lapidarists to create different results, including cutting, grinding, tumbling, faceting, cabbing, carving and polishing.

What do you need to get started in lapidary?

The learning curve associated with lapidary can be steep, but it's not necessarily difficult to get started. Beginners need access to basic equipment, with your gear choice based on what you want to achieve and create. Good lapidary equipment for beginners includes hand tools, rock tumblers, and cabbing machines. If you want to start a professional career, you may want to do training and obtain certification.

How do I choose the right lapidary supplies for me?

Choosing the right lapidary supplies can be difficult — so expert help is worth its weight in gold. From the outset, choosing equipment based on your experience, skill set, and goals is important. It's usually a good idea to start small and build your studio slowly over time as your creative goals and vision become much clearer. At AJS, we can help you make all the right decisions when it comes to choosing your lapidary equipment and supplies.
