Come learn how to turn a slab of rock into a beautiful, polished cabochon using a trim saw and lapidary machine. You'll explore how to mount your rough trimmed piece on wood dowels or nails to make them easier to polish and how to use progressive diamonds wheels and polishing powder to finish the stones. You'll discover basic rock types and knowledge, tumbling rocks, and we'll even share some of the best areas to rockhound in Utah! Students are welcome but not required to bring their own slabs to cut. Please bring eye protection and be aware that you will get wet.
