Gemstone suppliers in the UK?


#1

Hi,

I wander if any one can advise me of a good semi and precious stone
suppliers in the UK. I use mostly Cabs, at the moment I get my
stones from Kernow craft however they don’t have the variety that I
would like. The smallest they do a lot of there stones is 5mm round
and I would like to be able to get Amber, Malachite, Lapis Lazuli,
Aquamarine, citrine and a couple of others in 3mm round. If any one
can suggest another supplier it would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Karen Clynes

Try International Craft (www.internationalcraft.co.uk) but get their
Catalogue which is .50, as there is a lot more in there than on the
website. They have a good range of cabs, and I have found their
service to be very good.

I have used two UK suppliers, both of which give good service.

  1. Grahams Gems - On the Internet http://www.grahams-gems.co.uk -
    mainly faceted stones.

  2. Gemcraft (Manchester Minerals) - On the Internet
    http://www.gemcraft.co.uk - very large selection.

Hope this helps. Best regards Mark Vardy www.silvar.co.uk

Karen if you can comply with their ‘wholesale only’ rule, ie are a
retailer or manufacturer than I thoroughly reccomend CJ Burhouse at
www.burhouse.com The website isn’t much use but the ctalogues show
it all. or a more varaible range try www.mineralwarehouse.co.uk
