If you love agates and jaspers

Hi Gang,

If you cut stones and love fine quality agate and jasper rough, I’ve
got a “plug” for you. I’ve been buying slabs from a vendor on eBay
who has some remarkable material, often going for super prices (it
is an auction), and he’s great to deal with. Never met the guy,
standard disclaimer… just a very satisfied customer every time,
over time. He does also have other materials like turquoise,
variscite, charoite, etc.

He’s got his own eBay store, Serendipity Artistry:

Buying slabs works beautifully for me because I get exactly what I
want, with minimal waste. My diamond band saw makes short work of
trimming out cabs. Buying slabs allows one to accumulate “a little of
this, a little of that” without having to buy five pounds of
everything, then figure out how to slab it. Its almost as if I’m
building a library of slabs, rather than piles of rocks! :wink:

All the best,
