Dallasite cabochons from BC Rockhound material

Tommy Lay is that fantastic lapidarist who first made cabochons from our Dallasite. Now he’s made some more.

I sent him some high grade Dallasite, or so we deem it. He wrote a nice review of the material on this rock forum and posted a couple of his cabochons so far.

Dallasite shield cabochon by Tommy Lay. To me, the shield is becoming the signature form of Dallasite.

This is an interesting shape. I think I like it even more than the first. There is so much going on in here. The colours and design of Dallasite are pure artwork.

That last one is in his Etsy store. 

I can’t wait to see more of his work!
