cabochons and gem stone sell off
« on: February 09, 2019, 11:38:40 AM »

   For those of you in the Portland, Oregon area...  I will be selling off my private collection as well as my hand made cabochons. Getting old, kids have all they want to wear.
gem stones: 1,000's of faceted pieces,  I have a lot of high end material including some Rubies. Lots of Peridot, many specialty cuts, tons of Chrome Diopside as I love it. Just trying to sell this stuff for close to wholesale prices, not the JTV crap or overseas type with 10 facets, this is quality material. I do have bags of the JTV type stones from purchases at Tucson and other places. Make me an offer if you want some. I use to sell at shows and it was a good money maker. Now it is time to cut it loose.
   Hundreds of hand made cabochons. Look at my website, blueowyheegems@aol.com or Etsy, Blueowyheegems is shop name. These are not the sale pieces but I will take offers. I am adding more cabs every week as I have time. Want some really great large Russian Dendritic cabs, Montana Agate or Indonesian Fossil Coral????  I have boxes of these put away starting at $10 each. These are not the crap pieces cut overseas but look like the high quality pieces on my Etsy store. Volume prices.
   Also from Tucson, cards of the 3 mm Turquoise, Lapis and other cabochons made in the 1960's.....  cheap but beautiful. I will try and post a few pictures soon.

If you are just bored,,,,,,    please ask for pictures or prices if you are looking to buy.

    I am not trying to compete with $5 cabochons. Sure, there may be a few ell cut $5 cabs out there. Most of what I have bought from the overseas vendors are full of flat spots and scratches. They look good in the pictures with the oil on them.....   The cabs I am selling are well polished and hand cut.

    I will also be selling off tons of rough if you are in the area. I do not take pictures of rough at a buck or two a pound......   unless I am dumping it on e-bay. But I do have a good selection of cheap and good rough if you are in the area. Also over 10,000 slabs, most really nice material.

Drop me a line if you are serious and I will send you my phone #.

hope to see you, Neal

Nice looking stuff Neal, I may call you about some of the rough when the weather flattens out a bit.
Best regards,

It makes me want to drive to Portland, but being in the midst of a move of residence and rock collection takes priority.

I would also be interested (rough + slabs mostly), but it will have to wait until I move to the Olympia area (hopefully sometime this year) before I can do anything.   
But I am also looking at your turquoise and lapis images--[would you ship slabs and cabs??]
