Hello Martin, The best place to buy gems in small quantities and not
get an “armandaleg” mechant is to come to Birminghams Jewellery
Quarter. There is about 3 to 10 different places to try depending on
what you want…I’ve just looked in the jellow pages and couldn’t see
any of them posted…which is useful. If you are after small quanties
( 1-10 ) of small precious stones (.5 - 2mm) you might have to buy
enough to cover a minimum charge but it’s only like �5 or something.
I think it’s there to stop the students coming in and asking for
single 0.25mm cubics…after all, it costs more to sneeze! Anyway if
you not close enough for a day trip…tell me what you are after and
I’ll get an address or two for you. I’m busy busy until the 15-2-00
if it can wait. Best regards glenn.

Hi Henrieta, Most Gem merchants at Hatton Garden will sell in small
quantities, but I use a man in Maidstone and he has just started to
sell on-line (very useful).

Or you could try Kernocraft, in Cornwall.

Hope this helps
