Great uniform yellow, smooth and nice heart shape. Love it.
Natural, simple beauty uncovered!
I wandered upon a craiglist ad for lapidary equipment having never operated any of it. After inquiring if the low price included everything in the listing I bought it sight unseen and traveled from Seattle to Hoquium, about 250 miles round trip, to pick up my new toys! It was love at first cut! I have been cutting, grinding, shaping, tumbling, polishing, drilling, designing and creating cabs, sculptures, bookends, bookmarks, keychains, and other misc. items as well as jewelry for over 3 years now!
Mother Earth is the ultimate artist here. I "mine" through thousands of pounds of stone, listening very carefully to each piece, and locate the sweet spots to showcase. My intention is only to enhance the natural, simple beauty without overpowering it with high gloss- with the exception of malachite as it begs for that high gloss!
It takes 6 weeks to polish a stone in a tumbler! 7-10 days for each grit phase. It is meticulous work as a single grain of grit from a phase left in the tumbler will ruin the entire load and you have to start all over again! That's an expensive mistake! I have separate sieves and tumbler barrels for each phase to avoid contamination.
Reiki is my passion! Everything on this planet is made up of energy. I incorporate the metaphysical properties of different stones and crystals into my Reiki practice as well as most of my listings.
I hope you enjoy wander shopping through my store. Please feel free to ask me anything- I'll try my best to answer, solve or provide whatever it is you need!
May you always have love in your heart and peace in your soul! ~Deanna

I've had an interest in stones and crystals forever! I participate in Reiki and incorporate the metaphysical healing properties and energy of stones in that practice. I design and create all of my cabs and pendants, including the labradorite pendant I'm wearing in the picture, from the rough stone to finished product! Stones and crystals are simple statements of beauty. I only enhance Mother Earth's already gorgeous creations for your pleasure! Enjoy!

Additional policies and FAQs
I will entertain special requests i.e. stone specific cabs ready for wire wrap and/or wholesale lots. I have a modest but varied inventory of rough stone and crystal as I believe in offering a variety of products in a variety of different stone not mass producing from the same stone. Please contact me if you are looking for a specific stone or crystal or if you have a specific/custom request.
