Ruby Mountain5 Lapidary Slabs

 The goal of Rubymountain5Rocks is to offer unique, colorful, rare, or hard to find, Lapidary Slabs for cabochon material for creative lapidary artists, collectors of beautiful and rare specimens, and those of us who are rockhounds with a passion for collecting pretty rocks.



Click on the menu above to see our selection of beautiful gemstone Lapidary Slabs 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.

Coming soon:  Koroit boulder opal, Utah bacon (lace) opal, jade, and more!
