Wow I am so excited to know this exists!
I have a piece of uncut Kunzite [hardness 6.5-7.0] that is 8cm x 3
cm x l cm.
I want to drill through the l cm side to make a pendant out of this
rather than wire wrap it.
I made approximately zero progress using a diamond bit [not
submersed] for an hour.
Asked local jewelers if they could drill for a price and they said
they could not.
Is there someplace I could send this that would reliably drill it
for a price?
Or could someone recommend what equipment I would need to accomplish
Alternatively I was thinking of casting a silver cap and gluing the
stone into it if the general consensus is that it is not drillable. I
do have some kunzite barrel beads that appear to be drilled.
Any counsel would be greatly appreciated.
