Lapidary Arts – the art of cutting and polishing stones to make beautiful, ornate jewelry – has been practiced for thousands of years.
Before modern equipment existed, saws and wheels used to cut, grind and polish stones were powered by water wheels and mills set along rivers to harness the natural energy of the flowing water.
