Can I print on agate, quartz or other stone materials

I would like to be able to engrave on stone materials like quartz, agate, etc. Is this possible and if so, please refer me to instructions, etc.

Welcome to the community!

There have been posts about an amazing variety of materials, from grains of rice to dead bugs and everything in between. You definitely came to the right section of the forum for finding that information, so kudos to you for that. :slight_smile:

If you use the search feature and put the material you’re curious about in the search bar, then select “Beyond the Manual” in the “Categorized” pulldown, you should be able to find threads about pretty much all of those. Here’s a search for “agate” to get you started:
