About Us:

After years of avid stone collecting, it was a natural transition for us to become gemstone dealers. That happened in 1984 and we have been supplying colored gemstones to jewelers, designers and collectors ever since. The lure of creating our own beautiful stones led to the purchase of our first faceting machine. This quickly led to the addition of our lapidary services. Now we facet, carve, repair, cab, import and sell all types of gemstones.

Our rough is individually picked and has qualities that are personally appealing to us. It can and has come from almost anywhere -- vendors’ parcels, broken stone boxes, side of the road, rock shop hidden on the edge of the Chihuahuan desert, etc..

The cuts are chosen or designed to bring out the qualities of the stone, make something interesting and unique, and create eye candy. Then the fine quality cutting and polish transforms each once-upon-a-time-only-a-rock into a beautiful, one-of-a-kind gemstone.

Native cut stones:

In addition to the designer cut stones, we have standard and fine native-cut imported stock in all of the birthstones, plus half-drilled pearls and popular fashion stones such as Iolite, Tanzanite, natural Spinel, Andalusite, Turquoise melee, MawSitSit, Fire Agate, Rose Quartz, et cetera.
