0005201: Glazing an item gives it a "cut" like it was a gem
When I made a glazed statue, I noticed this in the description:

"This is a well-crafted earthenware statue of dwarves.
The item is a well-designed image of two dwarves in earthenware by Tulom Zelerogem.
It is glazed with oval ash glazed cabochons."

Oval cabochons is, of course, a gem cut... apparently, improvements use shapes like gem cuts, now...
Craft a glazeable item, then try to glaze it, and read its description.

I actually have this through a mod I am updating for glazes and ceramics, but the tag I used for the [IMPROVEMENT:] is exactly the same as with the vanilla raws.

Anyway, the problem seems to be that things like the cassiterite that is used to make the glaze has the [IS_STONE] tag, which means that they are given the same treatment as a stone that can be given a cut like a gem.

I just changed my mod so that glazes were [MISC_POWDER_CREATURE], so that they are considered "bone meal", and I stopped having odd gem cuts applied to my glazes. However, it is still bugged in vanilla.

Should be fixed for next time.
