Ancient technology applied in todays crystal carving.

Ancient technology applied in todays crystal carving.

In the past internal art within an Amethyst, Quartz required diamond rotary equipment.

Above, center 47 carat Amethyst (actually an Ametrine) was internally carved using rotary diamond tools Ametrine by Michael Dyber.

Today I use the power of sound to carve through crystal and aggregate rock. Like a hot knife going through butter I drive geometric star holes through the gemstone.

Drilling a perfect star hole in Amethyst has never been achieved since possibly 12,000 years ago.

Enjoyment in wearing ancient technology in use is most enlightening, especially if a glow-in-the-dark powder mixed with epoxy is placed within the geometric walls of the internal star hole, pictured below.

Turn the lights off and it glows… move it back and forth for neon Paraiba-like streamers.

Our distant past ancestors used this sound technology in engineering worldwide.  Our ancestors created god-like marvels, yet they were not gods.
