Auction Items

We’ve had some really wonderful donations this year.  We have lapidary equipment for those who have or want to start a home shop.  There are rough, slabs, and tumbler material galore.  We have specimens, too, if you’re looking to start or add to your mineral collection.  

We were gifted an art collection of carved stone birds.  Beautiful and collectible pieces.  There’s also lovely finished jewelry in many styles, and if you want to make your own jewelry, there’s supplies for that, too.
