A "cabochon" is a stone that has been cut (or shaped) with a highly-polished rounded, domed, or convex top but no faceting. Cabochons' bottoms are said to be "flat," although many will have slightly curved or undulated bases. Cabochons are frequently left with rough or unfinished bottoms, making it simpler for jewelers to embed them into jewelry settings. Cabochons can be carved into any form, although the most common is an oval.
The term "cabochon" comes from the French word for "knob," which is also the origin of the English term "knob." In the world of gemstones, you may frequently hear the term "cabochon" abbreviated to "cab," as an example, when referring to the act of cabbing - or when rough gemstone material is unsuitable for faceting, it can be referred to as "cabbing rough."
