I have bought some beautiful pieces (slabs) on eBay. Very slow
cutting, though-- this material is hard!

Cabs, slabs, or rough? I have Polish flint. It’s one of my favorite
stones to work with. Harder than heck to grind but takes a brilliant
polish and the patterns are wild.

Contact me off list if you are interested.

Regarding Polish Flint: We have quite a bit of cut stones in stock
and rough which is going out for cutting. Not all pieces are striped
as you know. What shape and size are you looking for?

delight to work with

You didn’t say if you wanted cabs or if you wanted to cut the stone
yourself. I found cabs at several online stores in the US.

I purchased Polish striped flint cabs from two online sources. While
there was no difference in price, there was a remarkable difference
in cab quality between these two sources. The most beautiful, better
cut and finished cab came from “Heart of Stone” studio.
