Sorry, I read previous post and still didn't understand what the terms cabbing, cabs, cabachon means.
I am very new to this hobby, as I bought my daugher a cheap little tumbler for Christmas and seem to have become interested in rocks myself. I have more questions, but will make them separate posts as to keep them all simple.

Cabbing, cabochons, cabs, are when you cut a slab of rock, then cut smaller pieces from the slabs and shape them for use as jewelry, or any type of setting. Technically, cabochons are round or oval shaped and ground with a dome on them.
