NATURE'S WORKSHOP is the ideal READY TO GO purchase for a business investor outside Australia. Buying NATURE'S WORKSHOP not only opens the possibility of permanent BUSINESS OWNER RESIDENCE visa, it gives an established business plus full stock and residence in one! NATURE'S WORKSHOP is the original, biggest and best known retailer/wholesaler of everything to do with semiprecious stones in Australia. NW finds the best products and prices on a World basis then sells to both Australia and the world. NW has a valued reputation going back over 20 years, and that reputation and knowledge goes with the business sale. However, the directors of NW are 69 & 58 years respectively, so it is time to think of retiring. But retiring will not happen until NW sells as a business. NW buildings consist of - office, showroom, big warehouse and 2nd floor modern spacious dwelling - and are in a development area. Flats have already been built one side of NW and construction is nearly finished the other side. So NW site is sought after and A$4,000,000 is the directors' price. Independent proof of this value on request. The estimated value of all stock & business hardware is A$500,000. You or your rep are welcome to check and either accept or negotiate this value. But physical check will show that this is a lower than real/true value to sell the business. So the 2 options to buy are ... 1) A$4,500,000 = buildings + all stock & equipment. 2) A$500,000 = stock & equipment only. A new owner with experience, knowing what the market wants, and the knowledge of sources that Peter Hunt can give, is sure to create a very profitable local & import/export "stones" business ... Australia has the best economy in the world!

Rock shop selling Rough at or below costs! After being in the lapidary business for almost 40 years the time has come to call it quits for my Rockshop. My wife and I are now faced with physical conditions that does not allow the both of us to carry on with doing shows and enjoying what we had so much pleasure in doing. A lot of our rough material is now at or below our costs in order to clear out what we have left. We have such materials as Morrisonite in premium or cabbing grade which was one of our most valuable materials. We have other such names as Owyhee Picture Jasper, Wild Horse Picture Jasper, Golden Graveyard Plume Agate, Burro Creek Agate, Purple Sage Agate, Youngite, Utah Bog Wood, and Batswana Agate along with numerous other favorites and varieties of rough mainstay materials from other areas. At one time in the past with of our operation we had some 120 ton of materials and now we’re down to some 25 ton and it’s ready for someone to buy and carry on the business. Our equipment selections have dwindled down to a home built steel 20 inch rock saw as well as a 24 inch Highland Park saw that was manufactured in 1967 an has had less than a dozen rocks cut up over the years. We also have a Facetron Facet Machine that was totally rebuilt with a tolerance of less than 1/10,000th play with several laps, dops and other items needed to do faceting. Then there is a “Little Torch Caddy Set” that has never been used which is also for sale in doing silver smith work as well as a new Nycraft burn out oven that’s new. I also have a band saw for cutting opals that is almost new with less than a half dozen stones that was ever cut with this small saw. We also have taken buckets and baskets and filled them to sell from $25.00 to $80.00 just to clean up so many loose materials. All must go and now is the time to get in on the action and get what you can before it is all gone. I’m not interested in those who would expect to buy for pennies on the dollar and those folks will be asked to replenish their supplies somewhere else and those with a fair offer will be addressed and dealt with honestly. E-bay buyers can do better by contacting sellers on E-bay as I will not sell at such ridiculously low prices as they offer.

Get Creative With Cabtopia's Designer Cabochon Templates
Newly Designed Lapidary Templates For Sale at with 100% positive feedback! We currently have a series of 12 templates and more on the way that I have designed and developed for lapidary and jewelry use. The following is some information about the templates I make (for images and to purchase, please check them out on Made from durable rip-resistant plastic perfect for the rough lapidary environment. Unlike acrylic or aluminum, this material accommodates uneven surfaces without distortion. There is 50 years lapidary experience between my husband and I and I have over a decade of graphic design background, so these templates were designed professionally, with the lapidary and lapidary environment in mind. Every design tested on the standard 6” grinding wheels. There are a few shapes that need a smaller grinding wheel to accommodate but we felt they were so attractive that it is worth using an alternate grinding source for those very few shapes that we left them in for those that would feel so inspired. There are 12 different templates in the collection and I believe only three shapes need a grinding source other than the standard 6 inch grinding wheel. Shape Sizes are stepped down in precise calibrations so the jewelry designer can use the templates as well. You can see your stone through the plastic but not enough to distract from using the opening as a pattern or view finder. Waterproof. Every template has a hole in the lower left corner for those that wish to hang them in their workshop or studio. Attractive design to the final template design makes working with these templates a pleasurable experience. These templates easy to maneuver around any size material be it a slab, crystal faced specimen, shell or other non-conforming lapidary material. Copywrite protected. We ask that you respect our hard work to produce our products as we are a disabled couple relying upon our own efforts for our income. As you can see, we have done our best to think of everything in designing and producing these templates to bring you the best possible tool we can. I just love using these templates and I'm sure you will love using them too, whether you have years of experience, are just getting started or somewhere in between.

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. Not interested in trades don't really need anything unless you're trading for cash lol.

REY VacuCast Casting Unit
Vacuum assisted casting unit with de-bubblizing table and dome. Easily pulls 28 psi vacuum, and has been tested (boils water under the dome in less than 30 seconds). I am moving to a much smaller house, and do not want to place in storage. This unit has been used to cast silver, gold, etc. and worked extremely well. Similar units sell on Ebay for $600, I need to get $350. I would like to sell locally to Nashville, TN, but shipping can be arranged. Emails only to mgdesigns at yahoo dot com. Thanks.

New line of CABBING MACHINES for your lapidary adventures!
My new cabbers are SUPER versatile, and will accept many sizes or types of grinding wheels or sanding drums, including 4", 6", or 8". Their unique design results in long-lived dependability & performance, but you'll be glad to know that nearly all parts are replaceable from local sources, should the need ever arise. My cabber's wheels are cooled with a clean recirculating water supply that is filtered, which helps avoid grit contamination and reduces unnecessary wheel wear. Whether lapidary is a business venture or just your hobby, you owe it to yourself to take a serious look my cabbers before you buy ANY other machine! Visit my website, or see them demonstrated at one of several gem shows I attend, and experience these new cabbers in person. If you're new to cabbing, let me show you how fun and easy it can be to cut beautiful gemsones! Thanks!

Here is an Awesome specimen of Sweet Home Rhodochrosite from Alma, Colorado. This specimen consist of two large plates hooked together and has beautiful Pink Rhombs nestled in amongst the bed of Quartz Needles, Cubo-Octahedrons of Purple Fluorite Crystals, Pyrite and Silver Tetrahedrite. This one has crystals on the top and the bottom of the top plate, as well as the top of the lower plate and is certainly a rare beauty from this legendary locale. If you wanted, I believe a skilled specimen collector could possibly separate the 4 lb.- 5 oz. specimen into 2 fantastic plates. This beauty measures 20 cm x 13 cm x 9 cm thick with the larger Rhombs measuring 1.4 cm. The Sweet Home mine is closed forever and the price on large specimens like this are sure to skyrocket.
