Try Mountain Gems, in Burnaby. They have the widest selection of cut
stones in Vancouver, at reasonable prices. They sell cabs in all
shapes including bullets, tongues, squares, etc., faceted in all
shapes, including some very nice fancy shapes (the owner is a stone
cutter). They even have drusy. They have most materials from rose
quartz to malachite, to amethyst, to sapphire etc. They don’t have
alot of rubies or emeralds, and I think they might have one diamond,
but as far as anything else goes, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Check them out :
4611 Hastings St.

Oh yea, they’;re not open on Mondays, but there open every other day
of the week.
Hope this helps,
