[Source] Rough stones


#1

I was wondering if anyone knows where to get raw uncut precious
stones. I have a few ideas for my senior open studio in jewelry but
some require the raw stones and I have had no luck finding any.

Google will get a lot of hits on “gem rough”. Plenty of sellers, but
be careful. Best to go with a well-known reliable dealer. For
starters, if you’re in the US, try Rob Kulakofsky at
http://www.facetingrough.com and Jeff Graham at
http://www.faceters.com

DAGS “faceting rough”. Or take a look at the Gram Faceting web site.

There’s a whole pile of it out there from many different vendors.

Hi Alex,

What varieties of rough are you looking for? I might be able to help
you out. Are you looking for well formed crystals or just rough? I’m
nowhere near as expensive as faceters.com

If interested please send a direct message.

Hi Alex,

You might try http://www.minedirect.com. We have been buying from
Farooq for years. Very reputable.

I hope this helps
