About

From out of the Old American west comes Turquoise..!!!

I started collecting rocks and ended up full time in the jewelry business at my roots were stone and rocks so this evolved into cutting my own stones and the industry found me and my business grew into one of a small hand full of lapidary shops that cut volume orders into the millions of cabs.My daily production for years was several thousand cabs a day.Learned a lot and been there done that..so now in my older wiser years I use my knowledge to work with my jewelry and other artist's jewelry .Being a professional and cutting for the manufacturers is a tough exacting business and I keep those standards for all my cabs I cut.About 25 years ago I acquired my first of many turquoise mines and so mine my own turquoise and have the best to work with..My equipment is top notch and none better..My skills are professional and my stone sources are the best from my mines and my 40 year stash and the other miners I deal with..I am mine direct to you

Welcome to My store..I have been cutting turquoise for 45 years now professionally and try to have ALL types of turquoise types available and also the natural shapes to freeform set or wire wrap or have drilled. My shop has top equipment and have everything from ultrasonic drills to auto cabochon machines. My shop was in a small handful of shops in America that could cut in high volume for the manufacturers. I routinely had orders for tens of thousands of special size and shape cabs... Just ask if you need special needs..?? I have been collecting turquoise my entire life and continue my stash and is one of the largest most diverse stashes in the world representing over 200 mines..I also own several very top grade turquoise mines and deal direct with other miners since in that circle.. My cabs are cut to be set in a bezel setting and are my standards of cut for my jewelry and my commercial customers. My cabs are cut to last when set and have lasted in my settings for 45 years now with only a couple of broken stones in millions of cut cabs..buy from a trusted reliable proven stone cutter with over 45 years cutting a very unique and hard to cut stone..."Turquoise" a stone of which I love and have dedicated my entire adult life to and has been my career to have cut and set in jewelry.. want to see my jewelry...???..!!! look here under James Saunders and will see my jewelry.I have been selling on the internet now for over 15 years (ebay) user name seagull52 and rock solid..Total customer satisfaction is my goal..
