For over 40 years we have been in the business of providing our customers with the best values for the rockhound and lapidary hobby, the mineral collector, silversmith and jewelry maker. If you have never visited a rock and gem shop before, a delightful experience awaits you. The moment you enter the front door, you are welcomed by clusters of lush, purple AMETHYST from Brazil and Uruguay, heavenly blue CELESTITE from Madagascar. You will be amazed at the wondrous beauty of crystals, rocks, minerals, and gemstones.
We have selections of QUARTZ - clear, smoky, citrine and rose - some with interesting inclusions. You will also find FLUORITE, SELENITE swords and CALCITE in colors of white, blue, green and orange. PETRIFIED WOOD from South Carolina, Arizona, Washington and Oregon are available too.
Along with the natural CRYSTALS and MINERALS, you will also find polished specimens of SPHERES, EGGS, OBELISKS and PILLOWS.
A favorite way to begin the lapidary hobby (the cutting and polishing of rocks and gemstones) is by TUMBLING a batch of rough rocks into smooth, polished stones. We carry LORTONE tumblers and equipment , a large assortment of crushed rocks to tumble, as well as the abrasive grits and polish necessary to complete your project.
We offer an assortment of lapidary machines; including Lortone tumblers, Facetron and Ultra Tec Classic and Fantasy faceting machines. We have a vast assortment of cutting and faceting rough and supplies.
We are a supplier of semi-precious GEMSTONE BEADS and FRESHWATER PEARLS, temporarily strung, ready for you to design and string. We also have sterling silver and gold filled beads in all sizes. We carry a complete line of bead stringing supplies: sterling silver, gold filled and 14K clasps, white and colored cord in silk and rayon, bead tips, and designing boards.
Additionally, we carry an extensive selection of mountings in Sterling silver and 14K gold for faceted gemstones and cabochons.
