Rocks gems from Miles
See my bio page for more info. In general I specialize in Alaska rocks that I find myself . The exception is I go to the big Tucson gem show (my mother lives there). I hand select and trade for cool rocks from around the world. Far left bulk cut gems I sell by the weight. Left, a dry river bed filled with jasper, quartz etc
Raw stone 3 black jade slices
Black jade from the Yukon river. Large3st is 2 x 2 inches good for large belt buckle. Satin finish not high polish. Could be recut into cabs, or wire wrapped for necklaces. I sell some of this for worry stones. All are 1/4 inch thick. Black is an unusual color for jade, so a unique set of stones.
Alaska river rock conglomerate, two pieces
No name, just a Alaska river rock off the Tanana river. Has a mix of jasper quartz, held together with sedimentary rock. 2 x 1 1/2 x 1/4 inches. Good for large necklace, could be wire wrapped. Hard stone takes good polish and holds up well. I use this a lot myself in my custom necklaces.
Raw Alaska jade 2 pieces 'aligator'
Two pieces of raw polished jade 2 x 1 x 1/4 inches. Unusual white line inclusions. does not effect stone strength. Found near Tanana on the Yukon River. Rare, no name for this special jade formation. High polish, good for necklaces, maybe wire wrap. Could be recut into cabs for inlay rings etc.
Alaska jade polished 6 rough pieces
Alaska jade small, from the Yukon river. about 1 inch x 1/4 thick. Could be wire wrapped for necklaces. Taken to a satin finish. I sometimes custom lost wax cast cap for stones like this and get $35. Good markup for craft projects
Alaska raw river rocks, 7.
Six river rocks from the Tanana river. No name, though the red is a type of jasper or 'bloodstone.' All are hard, have good polish. Could be necklaces. About 1 inch x 1/4 thick. I use these in my own art projects for necklaces
