Re: Re: Help making beads from HEMATITE stones

Hi Joan
I totally agree with what Bob said in his post. One thing he did not mention is HEMATITE is one the dirtiest stones you will come up against to work with. You end up with black mess everywhere even if you careful. "Gem Cutting A Lapidary's Manual" by John Sinkankas is a excellent source of information and like Bob said unfortunately it is now out of print, but I got a copy a couple years back on line you might try "Google".
Good Luck
Bob
