Cuprite Faceting


#1

Does anyone have any information on faceting Cuprite? I know the hardness, but any other information would be helpful.

Thanks, Larry

Hi Larry. Seems to me I heard something about wearing a mask when grinding the stone … or not. My best, Kitty.

Not much info out there for cuprite, I’ve been keeping an eye out for some nice rough but to no avail.
The only cuprite info I can recall is that wax laps are recommended.
Don’t know if that’s helpful or not.
