How we started
Stone Age Industries was founded in 1985, and ads were placed in Lapidary Journal and Rock and Gem magazines to advertise our products. We are now online with our semi-precious gemstone rough, slabs, cabochons, fossils, fossil slabs, gifts, crystals, minerals, and are dealers for a number of reputable equipment manufacturers and lapidary suppliers. Most of the lapidary equipment has been given or will be discounted from the manufacturers retail price, from outstanding manufacturers such as Covington Engineering Corp., MK Diamond Products, Thumler's Tumblers, Diamond Pacific Tool Corp., Estwing Manufacturing Products, and Rociprolap, (now owned by Covington Engineering Corp.) Lapidary articles on basic instruction are listed under the category, Lapidary Tips, a popular feature for some basic information working with rocks, such as how to tumble, how to lap, and much more. Please feel free to click on "Print" for a copy of these articles for your own personal use. For payment of orders, we accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover Cards, UnionPay, & money orders or checks, if you reside in the U.S.A. or Canada. We also accept PayPal payments, which accepts a variety of payments such as American Express, Discover card, MasterCard, Visa, and checking account withdrawal. It is your responsibility to notify PayPal to make a payment for the order. When you have set up an account with PayPal, you are able to shop many online stores without giving a multitude of stores your credit card information. After your PayPal account is set up, it is easy to pay for the order. Open your PayPal account and click on "Send Money", and type in our business e-mail stoneage@tritel.net, and the exact amount of the order. PayPal will notify us when approval is made, usually within a few minutes or hours, and your order will be shipped that day or the next if at all possible. Shipping is Monday through Friday. If using a U.S.A. check for payment of your order, it may take a week to ten days to clear before your order can be shipped. Orders from most foreign countries need to send a bank wire transfer for payment of the order. We will ship items large and small to many foreign countries and equipment can be shipped direct from the factory to your nearest airport or delivered to your street address.

Ordering and clarification:
When an order of one is placed in the Shopping Cart, under Rough Rocks for Cabbing, this is usually an order of one pound. A few rough items are sold and listed by one ounce or other, and this will be stated in the description of the product. If you prefer a five pound chunk of rock instead of five pounds of assorted sizes, clarify the order via e-mail or phone call if needed. We'll do our best to fill your order as preferred. Please do so promptly, since orders go out as soon as possible. In regards to ordering slabs, slabs are cut from various sizes of rough and when ordering one only, one slab order will contain five each, one inch squares minimum, approximately, such as 1" x 5" or any combination as to make 5 one inch squares". If an order of two is placed, it is possible to receive one slab with seven square inches and one slab with three square inches or one slab with 10 square inches, or any combination to make the 10 each one square inches. Here again, if you need a certain size, let us know. The pictures of the rough and slabs for the most part are samples of the material you will receive, not the actual rough or slab, although some are sold as pictured, for example fire agate freeform cabochons, fossil multiplates, etc. are listed as one only. We have literally tons of material and thousands upon thousands of slabs and cannot possibly make a web page for each item. We look forward to sending an order you will be satisfied with, but returns are accepted, if returned as shipped. No high grading of material is allowed. Just pay for the return freight with insurance in case the package is lost or pilfered. You may exchange the items or request a refund. A 10% restocking fee is charged if the items are returned for credit only. Please note in regards to the HANDLING FEE on an order: the handling fee is per box, no matter how many items are in the box. The boxes, tape, printing, labels, gasoline for 12 mile trip to the post office are paid with this handling fee. We usually enclose a free pen in the order if available and can be fit in the box. Thank you and we look forward to being of service.

Bill and Linna Beebe, photo by Ilene Olson, 2013
Thank you for checking out our web site. This will be our 31'st year serving customers, but over 50 years enjoying rocks, minerals and fossils. It has been a pleasure working with so many making cabochons for jewelry, using slabs for art work & making clocks or artistic paintings, spheres, bookends, lampshades, stain glass type windows, etc. Then there are some great manufacturers we have worked with as a dealer selling equipment & supplies. We've met some wonderful people either getting to know them via e-mail or those that come to the shop trying to learn how to tumble or just to buy rocks, plus. It has been a pleasure and we hope to continue as long as possible. Since many contacts only know us through e-mail, we thought it would be nice to put a face to the voice and or company, so we've added the above photo of Bill and Linna Beebe taken by photographer, Ilene Olson on our 50th wedding celebration in 2013. Thanks again for the many nice compliments via e-mail, gifts, etc. plus over the years. We wish all of you the best!
