Rough Gems: Crystals, Rough and Turquoise

We have mined or acquired some very rare and special crystal specimens, gem rough and other specimens.  We are offering these crystals and other specimen materials as inventory permits, which means first come , first served. Most of these crystals are one of a kind items.

All-Natural Nevada Turquoise Rough:

Our first priorities for the turquoise we mine is to meet our needs for cut cabochon stones and our premium turquoise Jewelry. Unfortunately, at this time, there is not enough stock to meet the high demands of our other lines and still have sufficient material left to supply as rough to those who would like to purchase turquoise in this form. As a result, the number of our rough turquoise lots are very limited. Check back, as we hope to be able to offer more rough turquoise soon.

Tanzanite does not normally come in fine crystal shapes, and often when it does the crystals are more valued by the miners as rough for gem cutting than they are for specimens. So finding tanzanite crystals for sale on the market is fairly rare. Most of these are on the smallish side, but would make both a fine specimen and some fine wire-wrap jewelry.
