We have thousands of polished slabs in many diverse mineral and fossil species. Along with a diverse and colourful range of minerals and lapidary gems, we are specialists in Deep Time Geology. We maintain a large range of the most ancient rocks, Stromatolites from the dawn of life, and stromatolitic stones, formed by biological processes of single cell organisms. While these items are of great interest to science, they are often attractive specimens in their own right. Our product range runs from giant crystals to gem cabochons

From large to small, we do it all.
