Remembering Stephen

This week, the gemstone world lost someone important, who touched me profoundly, though he may not have known it. A year or so ago, I took custody of an amazing amethyst that has been posted here before. Of course it’s huge size (just under 28cts) was the first thing I noticed, but it was the polish and the cut that stood out among the rest of the parcel it had journeyed with.

Stephen Kotlowski will be sincerely missed by so many and I am honored to be a guardian of a piece of his work, the finest cut amethyst I have ever seen.

The following are his images, that he posted to my Facebook page months ago.

I will take a long time to decide how to frame his already beautiful work of art. I just hope that I do it justice.
