chris ralph So Who Is This Guy, Anyway?

Well, I'm Chris Ralph, and I've been involved in small scale gem sales for more than 20 years. For many years, I was cutting my own gems, then selling them to local jewelers, friends and relatives. The internet, especially ebay, has opened a whole new world of selling opportunities - as well as opportunities for me to meet new people, and make new friends. In the several years I have been selling on ebay, my business has greatly expanded, and I am now expanding into finished jewelry. My relaxing little hobby has blossomed into a busy part-time business, and most of my stones are cut overseas.

Chris - In the Sierra Nevada Mountains near Mammoth, California I spend a lot of my spare time searching for gem materials at bargain prices, that I can bring to you at shockingly low prices. When it comes to turquoise, we mine our own right here in Nevada.
catseye opal gems
Rare Catseye opal - Mined at a little deposit in Tanzania, Africa. We have more of these than just about anyone.
I've come up with a lot of great stuff, some really beautiful genuine tanzanite, deep pink tourmaline, and bright orange Garnets. I also sell some Sunstone feldspar that I mined myself near Plush Oregon. Aqua, Emerald, Amethyst - Even more great gems are coming soon!   I have many other items in my gemstone inventory, some of which do not get listed on ebay (or anywhere else). So feel free to ask me about other things, including special orders for finished jewelry.  By training I am a mining engineer, and although I am no longer involved in the Gold and Silver Mining industry in Nevada as I once was, I still like to get out into the hills, where I dig for turquoise on my claims. I also collect US coins and sometimes sell surplus coins over ebay to improve my collection. If you have US collector coins and want to trade for gems or jewelry, Contact me and we'll see what we can work out. Most importantly, I have a great family with two wonderful kids and a beautiful, understanding wife.
