LAPIDARY DISPLAY

Lapidary display

Exhibition number: Displays 54

Lapidary work involves cutting and polishing stones for ornaments. At the beginning of the 19th century it was said that semi-precious stones could be found on the beach at Aberystwyth, but there is some dispute about how true this was. Certainly there were a lot of lapidarists in Aberystwyth at the time.
