Original Calcy Cabochons is a stone that is cut with a highly polished, rounded or convex top with no faceting and a flat or slightly domed base. A cabochon may be cut in any shape, though oval is by far the most common. The term comes from the French caboche, meaning knob or small dome. Metaphysical healers use small stones or cabochons in their rituals, but cabochons are most often used by jewelers and wirewrappers, to be set in beautiful and unique pieces of jewelry. Individual cabochons are then ground into shape with grinding disks or belts coated with silicon carbide or diamond dust. Order online now.
