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.

wireholic: Does anyone know if there are gems/stones or even just colors associated with the 12 step programs? My jewelry is being displayed in a shop that specializes in "recovery gifts" and I'd like to tailor the jewelry to the theme.

mr.mohs: recovery stones are probably a subjective thing- but the 'Book of Stones' would be a good resource...

wireholic: Good idea! Not sure if I have that book but I think I have a book on healing crystals somewhere

The Dad_Ohs: If you don't find your book, you can look up most any stone online and get a metaphysical answer about the stone, what chakras it opens if it works better with other stones or alone, what parts of the body/mind it affects, all that long hair stuff !!! LOL
