Behind the Scenes: Cutting and Faceting a 1000-Carat Clear Quartz Gemstone!

In this fascinating video, Matt from Matt’s Corner of Gem Cutting, takes on the challenge of faceting an extraordinarily large piece of clear quartz, over twice the size of any gemstone he’s previously worked on.

This massive rough quartz, initially weighing 3,215 carats, undergoes a whopping 40-hour transformation. The result is a stunningly faceted gemstone that weighs in at 1,160 carats.

What’s most impressive about Matt’s video is the dedication, time and precision that’s required to shape and polish such a colossal stone.
