Australian Boulder Opal - Thousands of boulder opals in stock in all kinds of sizes, shapes and qualities- Also lots of matched pairs [splits] - these are mirror image, perfectly matching pairs in a wide range of sizes and qualities.

A wide range of loose pearls and strands in various sizes shapes and colors. It does not take much to design great jewelry from these - they almost design themselves.

A palette of wonderful colors to stimulate artistic jewelry designs.

All the black and grey pearls here are Keshi from Tahiti. Keshi is a naturally formed pearl that occurs as a biproduct of the cultured pearl process. These pearls are just as nature designed them without the help of a nucleus put there by man.

A parcel of Rubellite cabochons that recently arrived from Brazil. In addition to all the colors of the tourmaline family, I have cabs of many other gemstone varieties including rubies, emeralds and sapphires.

These insects were trapped in tree resin more than 20 million years ago that became beautiful amber from the Dominican Republic. Lots to choose from.

A rare 2ct. natural Alexandrite from Brazil. The color that you see is the color in incandescent or candle light. In sunlight or fluorescent light this stone is a rich slightly bluish green. Many available from .15ct to 2.50 ct.

The finest natural color Fresh Water Pearl strands from China - these strands have fantastic color and luster and are just one example of the thousands of strands of Chinese Fresh Water or Biwa or Akoya [salt water] that are available to choose from.

This is an 8.72 ct. Peridot from Pakistan. Lots of sizes and shapes available but these become much more rare and valuable in sizes over 3 or 4 cts. This August birthstone has been an exceptionally popular color in the fashion world of late.

3 large and exceptional quality Fresh water pearls from China. These unusual forms lend themselves to very creative and artistic jewelry designs. Kilos of loose pearls to choose from in all kinds of sizes, shapes and colors. Lots of hard to find Biwa.
These are only a few of the many gemstone and pearl varieties that I buy and sell every day.
