    if you can find a copy affordable,yes i have one personally autographed, signed by him and his wife i knew them. if you can find an old timer faceter thats willing to teach you that would help. toobad your not in my area i teach for free and after one or two lessons you’ll be cutting on your own doing well.



    I have the first & second editions of the Vargas book.

    While Glen & Martha set the standard for general reference faceter books, I’ve found the two-volume set of books entitled, “Amatuer Gemstone Faceting” by Tom Herbst to be a little more modern and frankly filled with more real information for the beginner.

    Both volumes are available from Amazon for around $28 each.
