We have been in the gem and mineral business for 30 years. Bruce has a Graduate Gemologist Degree from the Gemological Institute of America and is a member of the American Gem Trade Association. He started rockhounding with an uncle as a kid, joined a club and competed in club gem shows, then learned in a Jr. High Jewelry class that he could make money selling jewelry to teachers and neighbors!
We use to mine a lot of our own materials. We had the contract for collecting rights at the Bagdad Copper Mine in Arizona. Now we search worldwide for unusual, and distinctively patterned, rough stone materials. We will custom cut the heart out of a stone to bring you the best designer cabochon available!
We sell everything from cabochons (both designer and bargain), to decorator polished pieces, rough, slabs, spheres, eggs, beads, bead pendants, minerals, and more!
You can see us at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show (The world's largest gem and mineral show!!) the first 2 weeks of February at the InnSuites Room 116-117 and at AGTA Booth #218.
You can see us at the Denver Gem and Mineral Show at the Holiday Inn North, in the north parking lot tent, space T12.
