About

Welcome to Fender Minerals offering Crystals Semiprecious Stones Minerals Cabochons Amethyst Pyrite Agates Geodes Quartz Gems Jewels and Gemstones

Welcome to Fender Minerals. Discover why our customers keep coming back for more!

If you are new to Fender Minerals we honor it all, from the simplest rock to the grandest gem. We dig some, buy some, swap some and we always clean the minerals so they arrive at your home ready for display.

Nothing approaches the quality of a handcrafted, hand polished gemstone. What is the difference? Factory produced stones are cut to maximize the use of the rock slice, hand crafted are cut to maximize the visual impact. Factory stones can have questionable labor practices often using child labor and unhealthful conditions. Many of our mineral samples are hand collected by us or close friends without use of power tools or heavy equipment.

We are totally obsessed with rocks and minerals. We started a mineral and gem business in 1996 just to "pay for our habit". Our customers encouraged us to go online so in 2011 we launched this shop.

Thanks again for visiting, we look forward to hearing from you.
