I'm seeking 8-12 mm semi-precious spheres. (or, undrilled round
beads) Ideally, I'd like to find a variety - quartz, turquoise,
amethyst, etc. I'm not too concerned about them being very high
quality. I didn't think these would be hard to find, but thusfar my
searches have revealed only beads, or GIANT spheres (40 - 1000 mm)
Anyone know of some good sources?

Go to Joseph Stachura Co and search "undrilled gemstone spheres".
They have quite a few.
I would recommend trying Hong Kong Lapidaries in Coral Springs, Fl.
Theycarry the undrilled spheres.
Did you try searching on the internet for undrilled semiprecious
marbles? I got a bunch of hits for this criteria.
