[Source] Crystal and Amythest points


#1

Quite some time ago I had an excellent source for crystal points
(clear & treated). The Arkansas mine owner would match the points
for earrings and you could specify the length you wanted. They went
out of their way to help you. I would buy enough to last me a couple
of years at times. Well the mine owner died, the people who took over
could care less about matching points for earrings, and were not at
all helpfull. Does anyone have a good source? I’d also love to find
a source for amythest points. These I used for Hand-Sculptured Wire
jewelry.

The past year I’ve also found an excellent silversmith instructor,
but I really don’t know how I’d apply this to the crystal points.

Any help is great appreciated. I’ve been making jewelry full time
for over 20 years.

Thank you,

For clear points, I suggest you contact the mines on the Mt. Ida
list: http://www.mtidachamber.com/yp_crystals.htm

For amethyst, I haven’t a clue.

Check out Howard Schlansker, out of Massachussetts. I have known him
for over 40 years as a dealer.
