As a gem cutting grandpa I get to find beauty in the depths of a rough rock, or in my grand daughter's drawing. Either way I am blessed, and hope to be a blessing to those whose path I cross. I am a man of faith, and I do not believe that these things of natural beauty fall into our hands by accident. Therefore I feel a responsibility to do the best job I can of exposing the natural beauty of these rough gem stones.
