Heat Treating & Faceting

Create something beautiful with your findings.


We Facet over 25,000 gemstones a year for Customers Just Like You who find Sapphires in our gravel.


Faceting is a grinding and polishing process (commonly called “cutting”) that creates a beautifully finished gemstone suitable for jewelry.  In addition to heat treating and faceting over 25,000 sapphires per year, we can facet your other precious and semi-precious gems.  We regularly facet garnets, topaz, amethyst, citrine and sunstone.

Find your own gems.
