Strumarist

Form of lapidary specialiing in cutting and polishing of high quality adstrumite into sidumar or adstrum gems. Recognizade as one of the most dangerous and most respected trades in Andellion.

Career

Qualifications

Becoming a strumarist requires one to first become a lapidary (someone who cuts gemstones) with a jewel-cutting guild affiliated with the illustrious adstrumite-cutting guilds such as the Adstrumian Guild of Fyron and Athor or the Strum-stone Cutter's Guild of Kerdaante.

Career Progression

Once one has mastered the art of cutting regular stones to perfection, either by hand or using an appropriate Knack or Talent, they must pass harsh trials in order to join the exclusive strumarist guilds. They must further follow rigourous trainings in order not to be blown up by the process and learn how to work in near-to-total darkness and cold. Due to the Ejii'aari's tolerance to cold temperatures they are often preferred candidates, although humans with particular powers also abund within the guilds.

Payment & Reimbursement

The professionals are well-paid and can become quite wealthy.

Other Benefits

Strumarists are usually well-respected due to the nature of their work.

Perception

Purpose
