New Faceting History article about Czech Gemcutting

I’ve been working hard on this article for the past year and I’m overjoyed to see it complete. I’m really proud of this one because I pieced it together for so many disparate sources yet it came together clearly and linearly. I will admit that this is also the longest article I’ve written, about a half an hour’s read so maybe get comfy on the couch or in the bath with a favorite beverage. I hope you enjoy this journey into the world of Bohemia and the cutting of the famous Czech Garnets.
