All, Does anyone know if the groves cut in “Lazer Stones” are actually
vaporized by a lazer? As far as I know the development of lazer
cutting in stones is still not refined enough to make lazer cutting
economically feasible. I know we can drill stones and inscribe
stones, but that is a far jump from making groves in multiple stones.
Customers look at my “concaved” stones and say they are “lazered”.
They definately are not. They are cut on cylindrical arbors,
controlled by an indexed head, just like a facetor. I think this is
some more misleading marketing by the jewelry industry.
