I am looking for a vendor in Tucson that sells cabochons in gemstone
materials - Peridot, Amethyst, Rhodolite, etc. The basic stones. I’m
looking for very good quality cabochons in larger 10mm-16mm sizes.
Can anyone steer me in the direction of a vendor down there that
will have these items? I found one last year at AGTA, but was
unhappy about his pricing practices - refused to give pricing
until I spent an hour shopping in his booth and then he
couldn’t give me a price per karat for the stones, etc. I ended up
leaving the booth without the stones. Without a price per karat/per
stone, I have no way of pricing my merchandise. Unfortunately, I
didn’t find anyone else at Tucson that carried what he had and am
hoping there are other options so I don’t have to go revisit that
situation again this year.
I’m looking for clear, gem quality cabochons. Thanks!
