Re: Removing emeralds from Matrix

While I haven't used them on gem materials, I have had some success using diamond and carbide tools in my Dremel to expose crystals from matrix. These are available from a company called MicroMark and another called American Science and Surplus. The going is still slow but they don't wear out quickly, either.
