Wild cabs!

Today was a continuation of the wild patterned cabs that I had started yesterday. I didn’t finish all the rough so that means I will have more to finish up at a later date. Darn 🙂 Ok it was a great time. The Fordite is just way too much fun. The more you grind the cab the pattern changes, I suppose if you keep grinding you could eventually mess things up or wind up without any. lol But once you get a nice pattern and shape its on to polish. The malachite is pretty soft and stains my fingers with black so looks like I’m ready for Halloween. The flowering tube onyx cabs are just a couple of small pieces that had broken off when I was cutting the stone, but they ended up a couple of pretty nice cabs. I haven’t cabbed alot of this material but it always seems to take a good shine. I hate wasting good rock.


Well I hope your weekend was as nice as mine was and thanks for coming by.
