Al Manestar – Maple Leaf Designs

Al Manestar was a highly valued guild member and Executive. He promoted fellowship, mentorship, a laugh, and was always helping. At times he performed several roles within the guild. Al made history when he faceted a piece of local quartz. He used frosted facets on the pavilion to proudly create his Maple Leaf design. He then presented the stone to Canada’s Prime Minister of the day, Jean Chretien There are 2 designs based on size. Please enjoy the designs and give him credit as the designer.
