Nevada Outback Gems - News Page 

Announcements of Website Happenings                                    
Here you will find information on projects I'm working on, new jewelry and gems from the Nevada Outback collection soon to be posted and other interesting stuff:

Welcome to our new Website (January 21, 2006):

I have been selling gems and minerals on ebay for years and always wanted to have my own site to offer more than I could through ebay. I had lots of ideas, and I've finally got it all together! As of today the site is being constructed, and lots of info will be added over the coming weeks. The site already has lots of info, but coming soon are virtual mine tours and fantastic deals on Finished jewelry, loose gem stones, gem crystals and rough. There are a lot of links to different things, so take some time and look around. I've spent a lot of time putting this together and I hope you will enjoy it and maybe you'll see something you would like to have. It may take awhile to get it all up and running, and I'll let you know about it here, so check the News Page from time to time, and keep an eye out to see what shows up!
