Australia's only producing Tourmaline mine. For Sale W.I.W.O
An opportunity to purchase the lease called "The Rubellite Mine" or as listed on Mindat "Mount Holland Tourmaline Mine". This a unique chance to acquire the property that has produced top colour rubellites, water-melons, greens, and achroites. Added to this are beryls "morganites" of considerable size. it is also the type locality of Kimrobinsonite. Due to the loss of my partner(joint owner), his wife and I have decided to sell this wonderful gemstone lease. All estate and duties have been finalized. It is 4 hours from Perth in the southern Yilgarn. Situated in one of the safest countries in the world. It can be worked in our winter, for up to 6 months without any hardships. The lease has about 18 years to go with a free option to renew for any amount of time in blocks of 21 years. There are 3 pegmatites on the lease, we have worked one, the other two have been opened up to 3 metres. All have produced gem tourmaline. The centre pegmatite had tantalite showing in hand specimens. The tantalite grade of the worked or southern pegmatite was just below 1%. The original owners recovered 2 x200 litre drums of tantalite concentrate from this pegmatite. There is a small open cut located on this pegmatite. We have been working underground along side this pit(20 metres vertical, with a 15 metre drive. The lease is 70 hectares(surveyed at the cost of $8,000 dollars). A mining company has drilled up to our boundaries for lateritic nickle, with some values high as 8% nickle(See Western Areas NL. Mount Holland drill results). The asking price is $US.75,000.00 W.I.W.O. If you want more information email me. This is the only way to contact me as I am at the lease most times. Please realize that if I am off the grid it may be awhile before I can respond. Fred Rose and Alice Bell.

Lambina and Mintibie Kingstones, and Mintitie Airport Plate
I have quite a bit of Mintibie Airport plate that I purchased back in the 1990's that I would like to sell. I was an opal dealer back then and still have most of my higher grade stock left, having sold most of the less expensive rough. I also have about eight kingstones in Lambina and Mintibie rough suitable for cabbing and/or carving. These would be sold in their lots and not single stones unless a kingstone. Most of the kingstones are Lambina. The largest Lambina crystal being the brightest I have seen. I also have a large Lambina that should cut a number of exceptional Blacks. I can send amateur photos if I have a serious inquiry. I can also provide weights of lots and the kingstones and accurate descriptions. If you wish to personally view this collection I will require a deposit of $100.00 to set up an appointment. This will be applied to the sale price if in excess of $1500.00. Otherwise it will be forfeited. I also some cut blacks if buyer interested.

We here at the shop have been in operation for 40 years and we have been selling off our materials and the time has come that we need to sell off the balance of what we have left. When we started to sell we had better than 125 ton of miscellaneous rock and now down to the good materials and maybe some 30 ton is all that remains. There is still great materials left such as Morrisonite, Owyhee Picture Jasper, Wildhorse Jasper, Purple Sage agate, Hubbard Basin wood, Utah Bog wood, Rainbow Brazilian Agate, both types of Biggs Jasper in slabs as well as some rough along with other agates, jaspers and many more of the old favorites. As for a lot of this new material that has been found and is being sold that has been found in the last 10 years we don't have or did we carry it. Our materials are from mines that have been closed for the last 20 years or so and now it all has to go. Many of the items are priced at what I paid for the materials some 30 years ago or more and some items are below what I paid as it all has to be sold as we want to move away from Idaho and enjoy what time we have left since we retired. So, keep in mind that we are selling our materials and E-bay buyers that want materials for pennies on the dollar just as well stay home and wished you would because any reasonable offer with be addressed. As for any equipment, I have a 1967 Highland Park 24 inch saw that has had less than a dozen rocks through the machine with a new blade and set up for 220 volt. I have a 20 inch home built steel saw and a lot of silver smithing tools and equipment as well that is for sale. So, folks come and get it before someone else beats ya to it as many items are not subject to shipping it as the back will not take it any longer. Just remember, "You snooze you loose"! Thanks

rare HOWARDITE (aka
We have a large selection of rare Howardite (aka "Rattlesnake Jasper") rough from small chips to 20+ lb chunks acquired out of an estate sale, that we are offering for sale. This is super rare material said to have been dug in the 1950's and it is said the locality is defunct or lost. The material is said to be an opalized tuff with chalcedony and agate which produces a plaid "rattlesnake" and/or veining pattern in pink, red, brown, yellow etc. It has been selling fast and probably won't last long. Pricing from $30.00 to $100.00+ per pound depending on pattern, quality, etc. This is really beautiful material! See our website and ebay auctions for photos and more info!

30" ROC saw with 36" almost new MK blade installed. In good condition on large casters with screw feed and pumped oil system. This is a heavy saw. $2500.000. 18" Highland Park JP3 saw. Rolls easily on large casters This is the old style with bearings outside the saw housing. In good shape. $500.00. Three 27" Vibrolaps. The motors and frames are in good condition - two aluminum pans are pretty well worn out and the 3rd is well used. $350.00 each. 20"Reciprolap. My dad bought this in 1973. It hasn't been run in at least 25 years. Plate has some wear but not worn out. $ 250.00 Have lots of silicon carbide grit (80 to 600 grit) that I will sell with the laps. I also have over 40 petrified logs that were collected in the 60's and 70's. These came off Jim Gray property and were collected by my parents. They are whole logs from about 8" diameter up to 25" diameter and range from as short as 6" to about 20" in length. These are high quality logs from just outside the forest.

With cabinet and motors on factory stand. Overall machine is good. Doesn't have the original shroud on the right. Looks good and runs good. Needs new grinding wheels. $850. Will crate for free but shipping is around $300 to the lower 48. This is a big combo machine and well worth the money. I haven't taken pics yet but if I get any interests I will. I am in the Kansas City,KS area. Item can be picked up also. Shoot me an email if interested. Have a nice day. PS.......I'm not wanting to negotiate much i'm asking what I pretty much want for it.

15 North Sea Woolly Mammoth Molars--$3,500.00 takes all.
I imported these molars from Amsterdam and just got a shipment in when Ebay changed their policy about Ivory. This was about 8 years ago. I boxed and stored them, but now need the money and the room. The average cost per tooth is $233.00, in the right venue they can easily sell for double or triple that. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Mike 970-779-0069 Grand Junction, Colorado

I looked a bit over the years but the last few months due to need to simplify my holdings brought me to the task of successfully trying o identify a hand ful so as to understand the possible bump in the road. so the call once again goes out to the honest lapidaries of oldand young to step forward and possible give your much needed info to name a piece of dust from the time past.

Smithsonian Grade Wulfenite Museum Piece San Francisco Mine
You are looking at a monster of a piece of Wulfenite.The images are not magnified as typical images of this mineral are. This piece is measured in 1+Feet rather than inches. You are viewing Smithsonian quality. material, some clusters and hundreds of clear crystals on the matrix. This item is for local pickup, payment method to be discussed between us. Classic Wulfenite/Mimetite combination specimens from the San Francisco Mine only came out in the 1970s and in the early 1990s. The piece is heading to pristine - no surprise given the fragility and age of these - but it is pretty close. There are so many perfect crystals available for viewing within this piece that overall, its just a huge piece literally covered with wulfenite. A piece this large for sale is usually not found on ebay. This overall massive piece has good dimensionality, and fine aesthetics, and tons of actual geometrically perfect crystals. Barite is also present. Cerro Prieto, Cucurpe, Sonora, Mexico. Transparent, lustrous orange-yellow windowpane Wulfenite from one of the world's best localities for the species. What is so striking about this piece, other than it's size, is the depth and richness of its color. The photography here is stock and unaltered other than cropping to emphasize different areas of the piece. A gold mine initially, then a gold-silver-molybdenum mine. Owned by Anaconda (1934). Started in the late 1800's and closed 1912. Reopened mid 1980's. Produced 720 tons ore/day (1909). Workings were 1,100 feet (350 meters) deep. Known for excellent wulfenite crystals. This piece was originally purchased from the original Wright's Rock Shop in Arkansas when it was in existence. Minerals Species: Wulfenite. Location of mineral deposit: San Francisco Mine, Cerro Prieto, north of Cucurpe, Sonora, Mexico. Description: Platy yellow interconnected wulfenite crystals with matrix attached. The wulfenite crystals are translucent and have lustrous crystal faces.

After years of teaching cabochons with students using the same old tired templates from the 50's or 60's I decided to design my own set. To learn about these templates, go to YOUTUBE then type in new cabochon templates or new lapidary templates and you will see a short video about them. There are 13 pages in the set. Each sheet is 8 1/2 " x11" hole punched for a three ring binder. The material is very heavy duty Lexan. 100% satisfaction guaranteed. Only $100.00 prepaid to the lower 48. International orders slightly more. My contact information is in the video.
