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.

HUGE Lapidary Material Auction March 22, 2014!
I am selling my complete lapidary which is quite extensive. There are over 170 varieties of rock, in rough form (hundreds of pounds), slabs (hundreds if not thousands), some tumble rough and a little facet rough as well as some display specimens. I have an inventory list I can send to anyone interested - my email is and I can send photos. The auction will be in Kidron, Ohio and can be seen at - although the auctioneer did not take many photos (he is not a rockhound!). I know many of you may not be nearby, but if you are a serious cabber that would like to get some top quality unique stuff, you'll want to be here! 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!

New Series of Lapidary Templates
I wanted to announce a new series of templates (currently 12 in all) 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 24 different templates in the collection and I believe only three shapes need a grinding source other than the standard 6” 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.

Website for sale - 12-15k visitors/month was started as a hobby about 1.5 years ago. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to give it the attention it deserves over the last few months, because my study (geology masters) is now taking up most of my time. So I have decided to sell the site, in the hopes that someone else will enjoy it as much as I did. On average the site receives 12,000-15,000 visitors a month to give an indication of its popularity. For more information please contact me through the email address listed below.

Indian Artifacts... I need bulk lots. All grades. Authentic
I'm really in need of Some "Bulk Lots" of Authentic Native American Artifacts for March and April. My supplier is unable to sell do to a short term health problem that has extended and extra month. I'm going to keep it short here and ask if you can find a supply of any region Flint artifacts I'll willingly give you all of my attention. My info if all in my contact info. The best way is to shoot a text to the cell #. I will respond within an hour. I am more than willing to buy smaller lots also. HELP! I can break down my needs to anyone that can help me. BTW the Artifact market is 80% down from Oversteets price guide. The book at this time is best for High high end and Artifact Typology. Ain't many getting rich, I'm just trying to eat. lol.
