Carving Gemstones

Hi- I need some advice. I am interested in what I think is called
’cameo’ carving or bas relief carving of gemstone material. I know
that I need diamond burrs, etc., and need to keep the work wet. I’d
like to start off with the minimum that I would need in case it
doesn’t work out. What kind of gem material is inexpensive and good
for beginning carving? Also, what assortment of burrs would be the
most useful? Can’t wait to get started so am looking forward to any
Thanks Sandra
