Price includes upgrade to a Medium Priority Flat Rate box for U.S. Because we sell most of our rough through eBay, please contact us for what you are intersted in, and we will work to find you the right assortment.

Obsidian Rough

1 Lb Black and Black with Mahogany Obsidian Rough

This is for 1 pound only of black and mahogany Obsidian rough pieces. In this batch, one piece that looks black might also have the spashes of the mahogany coloring as well, or could be all black. Occasionally there may be a piece of silver sheen or rainbow sheen as well, though no promises on either of these. Some pieces have a skin, while others are just rough chunks. Pieces range from smaller 1-2" up to some larger 4-5" one way. One pound would give you several smaller pieces that we would pack in either the Small Flat Rate Box or padded envelope. It you want more than the one pound, please email us first. Depending on how many pounds, and size preference, there may be an additional shipping cost for a Medium or Large flat rate box. For larger orders we would give a variety of sizes. The pieces in the photos are a good representation of what we have, but you may or may not get any of the specific pieces shown. The pieces were wet in all the photos.

Opal Mountain Rough

Rare Uncut Nodules and Pieces from Opal Mountain - 5 lb Batch

These are Thunderegg nodules from Opal Mountain in the Mojave Desert of California. We believe these to be rare, not much available of these to be found on the internet. They came to us from two different collections, one collected sometime between the 1950's and 1980's, and the other batch probably around the same time period, though possibly as late as the 1990's. Most of these are larger pieces, some revealing agate inside, others just look like chunks of rock with a colorful matrix. Most do NOT look like whole nodules, but like they were very difficult to dig out of a hard rock ground, with chips around the edges. We have not yet cut these ourselves, but we know of a few people that have, with some nice results. (The last four slide show photos are examples of pieces that the persons who collected these cut, most sold already.) Purchase of this item will give you a minimum of 5 pounds worth. If you have a smaller saw, please let us know so we can try to select pieces that will work for you. Otherwise, your selection may include larger pieces, estimating a 10" saw or larger. Contact us for requests of more or less than 5 lbs, and we'll work with you to get some hopefully nice pieces! Price includes extra shipping cost. International buyers please email for shipping cost.

Malachite by 2lb Batch

Congo Malachite Rough Pieces -Sold by 2 lb Batch

These are irregular shapes, left-over chunks and pieces of Malachite from the Congo, sold by a batch of 2 pounds. If you want more than one batch, please email us first to ensure we have enough on hand. The individual we got this material from made custom banister rails, lamp stands, clocks, and other beautiful pieces of furniture. These are pieces sliced off from what he used. Some have a degree of polish on one or more sides, others rough and unpolished. It is also possible there could be epoxy on a few as well. Your selection will come from the batch in the photos, but not necessarily one of the specific pieces you see depending on when you order. The pieces will vary in size, some larger, some smaller, some longer and narrower, as you can get an idea of from the slide show photos. Patterns vary - some are more plain, some have nice lines, while a few have some really nice orb patterns. A few pieces have circular cuts to them, possibly where cores were drilled from the full stone. A 2 pound batch will not include all of one type, we will try to include a variety of patterns. If you are looking for a single piece or two, email us and we will work with you to find the right piece!

Howlite Rough

Howlite Rough by the Pound ($3/lb)

We have rough nodules and pieces of Howlite from Tick Canyon, California. Howlite is a calcium-silicate mineral. The material makes nice cabs with its spider web patterns, and is also commonly used as good carving material. Though it is naturally white, with and without the black spider-webbing lines, the material is often dyed other colors because it so easily accepts a dye. We've also just recently discovered that at least some of it fluoresces as well! The photos are only an example, not necessarily any of the specific pieces you will get in the box. They are a good representation however. Occassionally there may be a few that have been sliced, though not usually with this batch. It is also important to note that, while some of this material will have beautiful webbing lines, a lot of it doesn't. We will try to select nice pieces for you, but we can't tell whether or not it will have the webbing. Please also purchase a Medium Flat Rate box at the bottom of this page if ordering more than 3 pounds total.

U.S. shipping cost: $5.50

Petrified Wood Rough

10 lbs Mixed Petrified Wood Rough

This is 10 lbs of Petrified Wood (AKA Fossil Wood) rough. This is essentially the same as the listing above, but 10 pounds, and includes larger pieces. We have not sorted out what we know (except the last photo came to us that way), so the material includes a wide variety. Pieces range from about 3 to 4" and larger, with a few a little smaller. The photos are only an example, but not necessarily any of the specific pieces you will get in the box. They are a good representation however. Price includes additional shipping cost for a Medium Flat Rate Box. International buyers please email first for accurate shipping costs.

U.S. shipping cost: $5.00

Wileys Well Geodes

10 lbs Wileys Well Geode/Thunderegg Nodules ($3/lb)

Offered here is a 10 lb batch of Wileys Well Geode/Thunderegg nodules, from near Blythe, CA, not far from Quartzite, AZ. The area is detailed in the popular rock-hounding books, "Gem Trails in California" by A.L. Abbott and "Desert Gem Trails" by Mary Frances Strong. Pieces are mostly small 1" nodules up to 5-6" (and larger as well). Most of these nodules are uncut pieces, as dug out of the ground, though occassionally a sliced one, or a stone from a different location, might have gotten mixed in with this batch, but we believe that is rare. With rough material, we are never be certain that it will have patterns or crystals in it at all, but from what we can tell, most of this material is well worth cutting to find beauty inside, and each piece is unique!

U.S. shipping cost: $5.50

Rhodonite Rough

10 lbs Black with Pink Rhodonite Rough ($4/lb)

This is 10 lbs of rough Rhodonite. We're not sure what location it's from, but we have similar material from several different collections so we think it mostly came from either the Randsburg area or Wrightwood, or slight possibility some may have come from Limekiln Creek (all California). Pieces that we would put in your box range on the average from about 2" up to 5" along one side. A few have been sliced or had an end knocked off so you can get an idea of what it looks like inside, but most are just the rough, uncut pieces, as dug out of the ground - most very black on the outside, some with a little color showing. Price for 10 lbs includes the extra cost for the medium flat rate box.

U.S. shipping cost: $5.50
