This gem box is ideal for displaying and packaging cabochon stones with full visibility of each and every stone. Arrange as few or as many stones as you want—and re-arrange them as often as you like. The inside surface of the box bottom is coated with a silicon-based gel that immobilizes stones; the flat base of cabochons adheres securely to the gel without causing harm or leaving any residue on the stone. The box bottom is made of black plastic and the lid is made of clear plastic. The lid of this two-piece box snaps onto the bottom.
Use your gem box again and again—keep the gel coating free of dust and contaminants by cleaning it with a piece of clear tape, as needed. Press the tape onto the gel surface, rub the area gently, then peel off the tape, restoring the gel's original tackiness.
Boxes are designed to stack vertically for easy storage and to fit perfectly into full-size trays—18 boxes fit neatly side-by-side in the tray.
• To protect the gel surface in the box, use tweezers when placing or removing gemstones; use care to avoid piercing the gel with your tweezer tips, and avoid touching the gel with your fingers.
• To easily remove gemstones, simply break the surface tension by lifting the stone with a side-to-side, peeling motion (pulling straight up against the surface tension makes the removal process difficult.
