My first stone carvings! Done with a flat grinding wheel. I’m very excited to be entering the lapidary world. . . These are all dodecahedra and cubeoctahedra. I collected most of the stones worked, which include agate from the Willamette River, obsidian, petrified wood, sunstone, quartz and labradorite.
The Dodecahedron LineUp, left to right; petrified wood, obsidian, carnelian agate, other agate, sunstone and opal. The size range is about inch and a half down to quarter inch. The tiny opal was pretty tricky being so small, and the relatively huge petrified wood took about 8 to 10 hours of grinding! Ah, good new fun
