My latest book is all about quartz. There are some really great features in this book NEVER OFFERED BY ANYONE BEFORE.

I’ve not only put designs in this book, I’ve included lot’s of information about quartz and personal insights to my experiences in faceting from the last 24 years. I believe faceters will find these stories interesting and enjoyable. This is a lot more than an ordinary faceting design book.
1. It comes on CD-R in .pdf format so you can print the entire book
or just those pages you want.
2. There are 109 pages and 83 faceting designs.
3. For the first time ever to my knowledge this book contains all the designs in .gem format.

This means that if you have Gem Cad For Windows you can load the designs into Gem Cad and tangent ratio scale them for any other material you would like. If you have Gem Ray for Windows you can do your own optical performance analysis. Most other gem designers are afraid others will somehow steal their designs or mess them up. I have more confidence in my fellow faceters. I believe there is no better way to learn Gem Cad For Windows than to examine what a designer has done. By adjusting the designs for materials with higher Index of Refraction and then studying your changes in Gem Ray For Windows you can see things that will help you understand gem design and optical performance. NOTE: I am not offering advice or help with your changes to my design. You are on your own. Or you can visit me and take my Gem Cad design class for a price. I will tell you though that any design done for quartz will work in other material. Designs created for higher R.I. materials don’t always work the other way.

THIS MAY BE MY LAST BOOK ABOUT FACETING, I DON’T KNOW. IT HAS MANY DESIGNS I DID SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND NEVER PUBLISHED, IT HAS A FEW OF MY BEST I HAVE PUBLISHED PREVIOUSLY AND IT HAS NEW DESIGNS THAT I REALLY LIKE. I INCLUDED EVERY SHAPE AND STYLE I COULD THINK OF. IF YOU CAN’T FIND DESIGNS YOU LIKE IN THIS BOOK, WELL YOU HAVE A PROBLEM.

MY WIFE SAYS I’M SELLING IT TOO CHEAP FOR WHAT IT IS. BUT FOR NOW AT LEAST IT IS STILL ONLY $30.00 AND THAT INCLUDES USPS IN THE USA.
