We are selling rough rocks that haven't been cut yet. They need to undergo the process of cutting and polishing to make them into beautiful specimens, cabochons, or carvings. The photos are some of the nice pieces that have been cut from the material by our customers or by us. Like any rough stone, it is impossible to see exactly what the stone will look like until it is cut. We work to provide the best quality rough, and every piece is different when its cut which provides an exciting opportunity in the cutting process. We are committed to your satisfaction, so if you don’t like the material you receive, then you may return it for a refund before cutting.
