[Source] Calcite Cabs in smaller sizes

I have the odd request of the day. I have a rather large commission
that I’m trying to complete; several pendants with 7x5 oval
cabochons. Two of the required cabs are orange and green calcite.
However, none of the places that I’ve looked seem to have cabs that
are that small. Even Google comes up with nothing. I can have the
cabs cut from larger pieces, but I’d like to avoid it if at all

Does anyone out there know where I could find the stones at something
like a reasonable price?

Thanks much,

Rebecca, if you can substitute for chalcedony, you might want to try
Maxam Magnata at 800.639.4367 or

Hope this helps.


Astro Gallery of Gems is a source for green, blue, and orange
calcite rough. They may have small cabs or can cut them for you. They
have been around for a long time, so it’s possible they have what you
need. They have a store on Ebay. If I had any of this stuff, I would
cut a few cabochons for you. I’m sorry that I don’t.

Good luck!
