Oversized Pieces: We are lucky to know miners around the world. Occassionally we are able to purchase huge boulders of rare and colorful material. These special pieces are usually one of a kind and may never be available again in the sizes we offer.
Monumental Sculptures of Jade, Chrysocolla with Turquoise veins, Petrified Wood, Rainbow Calcite, Jasper
We selected spectacular Siberian Russian Jade, Chrysocolla, petrified wood stumps, boulders, chunks and slice specimens. We cut and grind them to our designed form, then polish the pieces. They usually end up on custom designed and built stands for ideal display. Our sculptures run large to monumental and can be used as display art and focal points in a room, garden, hardscape, landscape to public display location.

Tell me about Arizona Rainbow & Indonesian Petrified Wood Fossils
Petrified wood comes from ancient fallen trees that over thousands of years has been converted to stone cell by cell. Petrified wood comes in many colors. Here is a list of elements and related color hues appearing in petrified wood:
carbon - black
cobalt - green/blue
chromium - green/blue
copper - green/blue
hematite - red/pink
iron oxides - red, brown, and yellow
manganese - pink/orange
manganese oxides - blackish/yellow
silica - clear/white
Petrified wood can be found in many states and in countries around the world. Arizona petrified wood is famous for it's high quartz content and brilliant colors. Much of it comes from the Chinle rock formation. This petrified wood is between 220 and 250 million years old, early dinosaur age. This petrified wood can be polished up to a brilliant shine.
Our Indonesian petrified wood stump end, side and coffee tables, stools, pedestals and display slabs and slices come from Java Island, Indonesia. The petrified wood on Java Island is about 20 - 25 million years old. This product polishes up but has less quartz in it than the Arizona petrified wood. It's less variable in color and its polish is less brilliant than Arizona petrified wood.
Tell me about Iron and Stone Chondrite Meteorites
Meteorites are meteors that survive passage through the earth's atmosphere such that part of the meteors strikes the ground. More than 90 percent of meteorites are of stone, while the remainder consist partly or wholly of iron and nickel.
We sell both Iron and Stone Meteorites. Stone meteorites do usually have some iron in them and show some magnetisim just not as much as Iron meteorites.
We currently have a wide variety of NWA (North West African) Unclasified Stone meteorites in stock. These are also refered to as Chondites. All sizes available. Iron meteorites come and go from our website, so keep an eye open.
Tell me the difference between a Mineral, a Rock, a Crystal and a Gemstone?
In short, a mineral is a naturally occurring substance that is formed through geological processes. Minerals have a characteristic chemical and physical composition, particularly a highly ordered atomic structure that is normally crystalline. A rock is an aggregate of minerals and does not need to have a specific chemical composition. A crystal is a solid whose atoms are arranged in a 'highly ordered' repeating pattern. These patterns are called crystal lattices. If an object has its atoms arranged in one of seven crystal lattice patterns, then that object is a crystal. A gemstone is a highly attractive and valuable piece of cut and polished mineral that is used in jewelry or other decorations. Some rocks such as Lapis Lazuli and organic matter such as Amber also classify as gemstones.
Many of our specimens are oversize, large and sometimes huge. This makes them ideal for decorative use by interior designers, landscape and garden architects and collectors of large specimens.
Healing, Spiritual, Chakra and Metaphysical stones
For eons people have utilized the power of healing stones and crystals to release mental, physical and spiritual blockages, thereby facilitating the free flow of energy in the body. We offer a wide variety stones, crystals and wands.
