A gemstone cabochon is cut with a highly polished rounded top with no faceting and a flat or slightly domed base. A cabochon may be cut into any shape, though oval is the most frequent. The term, "cabochon" comes from the French "caboche", meaning small dome. Some gem types are almost always cut "en cabochon", including opal, jade, turquoise, onyx, moonstone, and star sapphire. Cabochon is often shortened to "cab" by gem enthusiasts.
Gemstone cabochons are available in pretty much every color of the rainbow and may be star gems, cat's eye gems, transparent, translucent or opaque. Cabochons make excellent necklace pendants, rings, bracelets, earrings and more.

Gem select is the most trustworthy web site for gems. What I see in the picture is exactly what I get. Size is indicated by carat weight, and not the picture size, as they are trying to give an up close view of the gem I am hoping to buy. It was so easy to find the stones I was looking for at a price I could afford.
