Not sure what is wrong with my pics..the pics are all distorted. The large ovals are actually perfectly round discs tablet cut, and the other one is a large cushion cut…pics are completely distorted..always seems to do this to me.

I upload everything from my iPad …save the images as a medium sized file..any ideas?

Hello Vince and everyone,

I will post some pics of more recent pieces….any objections it is Vince’s fault.

A few recent Marra Mumba pieces from some old material I bought about 5 years ago.. We spent most of our lives living and working from Coober Pedy and exploring the Australian Outback..  Of all our unique gemstones, I think this material is arguably the most beautiful, and best represents the colours and landscapes of our Australian rugged interior.

I have cut a series of large discs and rectangles that I think really show the colours and patterns best..

I will share a few with you.

Dear Friends .... Have been considering the Sterlinggemland Facetor St-08. Can/would someone that owns this model be able to provide your input or hands on experience with this Facetor? Any pros & cons would be appreciated.

How has the model with inbuilt speed controllers and motors held up. Also in the event of failure/how I can obtain or repair the unit here Stateside. Feel free to PM if you prefer. Please ... If this has already been posted or explained somewhere - just tell me where to go!

Just looking for some reviews of this machine. Any an all input, advice or suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thank you very much!  IV

Good looking rock. I like putting those "unknowns" on the saw when they're as interesting as that one is.

Here is a rock I found in my pasture while digging a bed for potatoes.  When you live in the North Puget Sound country there are a lot and I mean a lot of interesting rocks in the ground.  I am particularly intrigued by this one.  I have cut a slab and marked it.  It will be interesting to see how it comes out in the winter.  Has anybody seen more of this materiaL.  The pink is not Rhodonite as it shows no tendency to black oxidation.  It is slightly harder than the matrix. I will send a photo this winter when I get around to roughing this puppy out and cutting it.
