gem inclusions

rutile in quartz


Gems can do a lot more than glitter. In me, the world of minerals inspires delight and wonder, evoking the mystery at the heart of creation that is snuffed out by banality and convention.  A jeweler since 1968, I quickly tired of the standard inventory of available gems and began to cut my own.  I found gem cutting so enjoyable that I soon had more gems than I could ever set.  I started sharing my collection with other jewelers and this is my continuing effort.  Enjoy!
