Click on the menu above to see our selection of beautiful gemstone lapidary labs perfect for your lapidary needs.  Each specimen is picked for its color and pattern to make perfect material for your cabochons or display pieces.  As a geologist, I am familiar with the formation and occurence of these rocks and information on each rock is provided in the description.  Whether you are looking for the beautiful chatoyant minerals like Charoite or Binghamite, the unique picture patterns of Owyhee Picture Jasper, Cherry Creek Jasper and Bigg’s Picture Jasper, or the stunning colors of Rhodonite, Opal and Lepidolite, we have what you are looking for.

Inventory will be continuously added, so check back often.  I am always working to find new, rare and unique specimens for your jewelry, stone decor or display pieces.
