Cabochons - Can't get enough of 'em

California Pink Tourmaline Cabochon 5-6mm
Many a beautiful cabochon in Best Beads, something to tickle your fancy no matter which way you turn! There are loads of cabochons to place in your favorite setting or loose beads to string on a necklace that you've longed to create. As you can see I've taken a fancy with the cabochons. So many lovelies.

Cushion Prehnite Cabochon - 12 mm square

what exactly is a cabochon? I know they are pretty...that's about it :)

Both sets are lovely. I love Prehnite, and all colors of Tourmaline.

Cabochon is a gemstone which has been shaped and polished as opposed to faceted. The resulting form is usually a convex top with a flat bottom.

Cool - thanks for answering the cabochon question :)

I just bought some cabochons from that site, too. I think we have the same prehnite.

I can't wait until I have some time to work with them.
