Cabochon Book


Whilst on the airplane returning from Tucson (subject of another
post), I noticed a man reading a book about cabochon cutting a couple
of rows ahead of me. As a cabbing teacher, I’m always looking for new
material and this appeard to be a book I have not seen before. I
engaged him in conversation and got the name of the
book…Cabochoning with the Pros by Edwin B Smith. It was published
in 2004 but I have not seen it on the market anywhere though he told
me he purchased it in Tucson.

A check on Amazon gave me nothing. Does anyone know about the book
and where it can be purchased?

Also, Glenn Klein came to our store (Graves Company) in Tucson and I
had a chance to talk with him about his new book on the history of
faceting diamonds and colored stones. It looks like a keeper folks so
don’t miss this one.
