CLICK CHELSEA'S DIY LINK FOR TH PHOTOS!!
I ran across this post while surfing Style. I don't usually post up style, clothing, or hair ideas on this blog, because it is usually to inform about gemstones we have, know about, are interested in, or ads with Polyvore. However, I am finding that they all go hand in hand, pun intended!
So please join me in our Newest Blog, "Styling With CJD.Sign",
ME!! It will be a welcomed change for Matt, who is all about gemstones, and would love to not see so many fashioned articles on our gemstone Blog :-)
So here is the first of many blogging topics as not sleeping and blogging have become a way of life for me!
Thanks for making the jump with me!,

December gave us an unusual job. Pallasite is a meteorite consisting of Olivine (Peridot) and Nickel Iron. A client acquired a piece of this Pallasite and wished to use the stone in a class ring. The challenge of this particular metallic/stone compound is that the crystals of gem are harder in substance than the metal. This created a problem in cutting and polishing of the finished cabochon. Matt took this project on as a personal challenge, but he does not recommend this stone/Pallasite to be used in the future as a cutting project. Included are photos during cutting and of the finished piece. Neat photos though. Will include when I am back at the PC. By CJD.Sign
