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!

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.
When not prepping crystals we grab our gear and head out to the mines to dig some more.

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. At Fender Minerals 99% of the gemstones are handcrafted not factory produced. Many of our mineral samples are hand collected by us or close friends without use of power tools or heavy equipment.

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