so I was cleaning out my closet the other day and came across a rather heavy bag....

opening it, I found my collection of rough semiprecious stones.

and I can't find a lapidary!!!!!

anyone able to suggest one?

If I am not mistaken, a lapidary is one who can assess the value of the stones, yes?

If so, you can probably go to most jewelers for such a service.

Either way, I would think you would want a lapidary in your area, and to advise you on that, we would kinda need to know where your area IS.

a lapidary is one who handles stones to cut and polish.

and I'm in the North East TN area.
