Our organization had its beginning as the USA Competition Faceters in January 1990, when it was proposed as a support group for the USA team in the Australian Faceting Challenge. Our first newsletter appeared in April 1991. At that time, the goals were expanded to include compiling a set of rules for Single Stone Competitions. Since that time, we have established a comprehensive set of Single Stone Rules to assist in encouraging greater uniformity in the judging of single stone competitions.
Participants compete for honor, self-improvement, and to promote their businesses
Our annual competitions are designed to provide objective and balanced evaluations
Faceters of all skill level are welcome to compete with four classes of entry from novice to grand-master
