Hello to all of you wonderful Ganoksin artists.
I, through a contact of my husband’s, have recently created a
business= relationship with a family of miners (related to our
contact) in Kenya. I am purchasing rough from them and need to find a
faceter. I have already done my due diligence on the miners and
stones and everything is very “cut and dry”. I’ll be purchasing
quantity of high quality Tsavorites, Color Change Garnets and many
other types of stones. All of the stones I am purchasing COD. I will
be hand selecting the stones out of rough parcels once they arrive
stateside. I have enough knowledge of gemology to be able to select
faceting rough and cabbing rough.
I truly need someone who would be willing to work in medium sized
batches of rough stones. My total order is only 1400+ grams of
various gems so not quite large enough for most commercial faceting
companies. I would even be willing to barter some of the stones as
part/all of the contract for faceting. I do have Llyod Forrester of
Clear Cut Gems http://www.clearcutgems.com, here in Florida working
on the best stones out of the sample parcel. I plan on continuing to
work with Llyod but I am also seeking someone to do the rest of the
"roughly" (if you’ll pardon the pun) 500+ stones.
I wish you all happy days filled with many sales!
