Stephen Kotlowski was not only an amazing cutter but also a mentor and guide to many in the faceting world. He shaped gems and minds, bringing out the beauty in both.

I was stunned when I heard the news. My first thought is for his daughter whom he seemed to cherish. I take it it was sudden and unexpected as his passing has seemed to catch the world off guard.

I am not aware what the cause of death was but he was posting new gem pictures on the 17th. I feel for his family.

Stephen is a good man and will be dearly missed by all that knew him.

May his family find peace in knowing he was loved by many and will be thought of in the most wonderful sense.

Most Respectfully;
