Carving process

Carving Jade requires a very specific skill set. 

The following is our process for creating our unique one of a kind pieces.


All of our tools for cutting and grinding are made out of synthetic diamond, and are used with water at all times. Water plays the role of lubricant between the tool and the stone, and also catches the dust that grinding and cutting can produce. 


Our stone, Jade, is composed of 2 minerals tremolite and actinolite, which are essentially two types of Asbestos. It is therefore essential for us to keep the dust wet to work in a safe environment.
