Hi Geo.

The best place for Tufa is the reservations in Arizona…
Perhaps other reservations in other states may have it…

If you still can’t locate a supplier I will try to inquire here
where you can find some… There may be a place in Flagstaff ,
Arizona… I will try to check it out…

Do you have any good techniques for using Tufa ? I have a few
big pieces laying around in my studio and would love to use
it…

Re the request for Tufa stone, I suggest Indian Jewelers Supply
in Gallup, New Mexico. They show it in their 1997 catalogue as
stock #340-TF01, at $1.50/lb for up to 9 lbs, with a drop at
10-24lbs. Their number is 1-800- 545 - 6540. I have always
found them to be very helpful. If they don’t carry it anymore,
I am pretty sure I saw it at Santa Fe Jewelry Supply but my guess
is that IJS would be less expensive. I am so happy to have been
able to help someone on this site! I have felt like a sponge,
soaking in all your wonderful advice, but wishing I could give
something back. Now perhaps I have! Shael Barger dakotah designs
