<img src="/images/tenner-group.png" border="0" hspace="4" vspace="3" align="right" />Tenner ‘Fiver’ Diniz, one of the worlds most experienced lapidaries is back on Rocks & Co. this weekend from midday Friday to Sunday. A lapidary is a virtuoso in cutting, polishing and engraving gemstones, an art form Tenner mastered during his six years in the gemstone business. Tune into Sky 642 and Freeview 49 this weekend as Tenner helps you understand the many facets of gemstone jewellery.<br /><br />As the little brother of the Rocks & Co. resident Gem Hunter, Tony Diniz, gemstones have always been part of Tenner’s life. When Tenner was old enough to enter the industry, he focused on lapidary, gradually moving from pre-forming to slicing to cutting and then polishing. Today, he is also a gemstone buyer who has travelled to over 19 countries in his quest for gemstones.<br /><br />The thing that fascinates Tenner most about his job is his ability to beautifully transform rare natural treasures from the earth. For Tenner, the art of making a gem assume a certain shape, unlocking its hidden lustre, colour and brilliance is the challenge. Amongst lapidaries, Tenner belongs to the elite that can expertly facet Kunzite, a gemstone many cutters find challenging. But more importantly, he can cut any gem variety and has personally cut many of the gemstones sold at Rocks & Co.<br /><br />Whether you are new to jewellery or an experienced connoisseur, don’t miss Tenner this weekend on Sky channel 642 (8am - 2am), Freeview channel 49 (8am - 12am) and online at <a href="http://www.rocksandco.com">www.rocksandco.com</a>.
