I’m looking for a source for high-quality lapis that has been cut/
shaped and ready for bezel setting, but not polished or formed into
cabochons. In other words, the face of the stone is left rough, or
possibly it is hammer-textured or something. (I’ve searched the
archives already to no avail and have seen sources for shaped, rough
textured lapis beads, but none for cut stones.)
I’d also like to have a source for chlorastrolite (Isle Royale
Greenstone) from Michigan. Any leads will be greatly appreciated.
