​Lapidary 

The art of lapidary is taking a rough piece of rock or mineral and turning it into a beautiful stone for a piece of jewelry. Students will learn to use the lapidary saw, abrasive wheels for grinding and the use of the “Genie”. Each student will need to supply their own rocks; preferably jaspers and agates approximately 3”x3” or larger.
