I’m trying to set rough Alaskan garnet crystal that comes naturally
faceted though in blunt, undefined angles. It looks like this link
(scroll down to garnets from Alaska)
I want to put it on a ring, originally pinsetting it. It turns out
that garnet is not very high on the Mohs scale, so I have to rethink
how to set it. Is there a way to set/capture rough garnet crystals
in a way to protect the stone and still be able to see it ‘in the
round’ and not look kludgy?
All the best,-Elaine.
