  Should you desire a particular style, shape, etc. from the web site, the rock species name, and cabochon inventory number, (# C-999), will help identify the gem.

  Photos of current inventory can be emailed or text msg, until the right color/pattern/shape to suit you, is found.

  It is my pleasure to create for you the piece you have in mind, just ask.

  Yes !! That rock from the back yard, or collected on vacation, if cuttable, can become jewelry.

  Thank You
