CABOCHON Definition

The term 'cabochon' simply refers to a smooth, non-faceted stone, most typically with a flat back and oval in shape. They may be either natural gemstones or man-made. Due to the large variance in materials, the Moh's hardness of each cabochon will vary. For your convenience, when you hover over a particular cabochon option below, we will tell you its name and also its Moh's (hardness) rating. As our cabochons are either handmade or made by mother nature, each one is one-of-a-kind, and color & pattern variation is to be expected.

Fancy Ovals refer to large, faceted crystals that are oval in shape and have pointed backs. These are man-made and from the same manufacturers that supply our crystals.
