GLYPTOGRAPHY OR INTAGLIO IS THE ANTIQUE HANDENGRAVING TECHNIQUE OF GEMSTONES, WHICH HAS BEEN AROUND FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS.  THERE ARE MANY EXQUISITE EXAMPLES IN THE MUSEUMS.  

THE HANDENGRAVING IS DONE WITH DIAMOND POINTS ACHIEVING  REMARKABLE DESIGNS.  THE INTAGLIO CAN BE DIRECT OR REVERSE.  REVERSE INTAGLIO USES A TRANSPARENT GEMSTONE LIKE CRYSTAL QUARTZ.  THE ENGRAVING MAY BE FILLED WITH GOLD, SILVER OR COLOR LACQUER.
