A Conversation about Stone Cutting with Jean-Noel Soni
Specializing in Award Winning, Original Gemstone Cutting.
Friday, May 8, 2015
4437 N. Ravenswood Ave, Chicago
Jean will bring along a great assortment of Gem Quality rough crystals as well as cut gems. This may include a 44ct Tourmaline and a Spectrum Award winning 24ct Color Change Garnet. He will have many other fine examples of cut stones to show and discuss.
The evening will begin with a “show and tell” about the rough crystals, talking about where they’re found, how they’re mined and what he looks for before cutting them. He has many stories to share. Attendees are encouraged to handle them and ask questions. It’s more about discussion than a lecture.
There will be stones available for purchase but please be mindful that this event is more of an educational experience and not a selling event.
