Lapidary Supplies and Equipment for Sale
After nearly 33 years in the business, Stone Age Industries has become the premier dealer for lapidary supplies and equipment, providing rockhounds with only the most cutting-edge products for their craft. When working carefully with semi-precious gemstones, it is important to use strong equipment that both perceives your material sensitively and works well with various types of rock and slab.

In addition to the books we mentioned before, we also offer tips on crafting and cabbing the rough rocks and slabs we have for sale. Every day, we happily teach our customers which rocks are ideal for particular situations, how to best use the rocks without damaging them, and how to get the perfect end result. That way, your purchase will be money and time well-spent.

These serve as the perfect gift for anyone looking to take up this precious hobby, as they provide a patient step-by-step account of where to begin. The relieving truth about lapidary work is that it does not discriminate based upon any level of natural artistic skill. You can be anyone and still create a rockhound majesty. Simply choose from our all-natural, non-treated gemstones, such as chalcedony, agate, jasper, jade, malachite, tiger eye, rhodonite, etc. and then, be on your way. Please note when ordering 1 for a rough rock, this usually means one pound. The description on the product will tell you if it means 1 oz. or other. When ordering a slab, normally this means the slab or in some cases more than one slab on a few products, will be an order of 5 one inch squares in the slab, or approximately 2″ x 3″ or so. The material is slabbed in our saws, and the slab is measured in one inch grids to make one order or some times five orders in the slab, plus, depending on the material. If in question, make note on your receipt via PayPal or send us an e-mail.
PLEASE NOTE: If an item is going to be shipped to a California residence and that purchase is for equipment or other that will be shipped from a California manufacturer of those products, a TAX OF 8.75% will be due. Those manufacturers will be: Covington Engineering Corp., Diamond Pacific Tool Corp., & MK Diamond Products (lapidary blades, etc.) Should we have some items in our stock from those manufacturers, no tax will be due. The nice discounts that are given on our web site from us then shipped by the above California manufacturers will help with your costs. We appreciate your understanding!
