How are gemstones cut

Start to finish process of faceter, Steve Moriarty, cutting a huge 571 carat quartz from Arkansas. He starts with the raw crystal, preforms it into the general shape, facets the stone, then finally puts a beautiful finish on each facet of the gem. This is the largest gemstone that Steve Moriarty has ever cut. It weighs over 1/4 pound! Watch as this rough stone is transformed into a beautifully cut gemstone.
