Lapidary & Collector Slabs

Included here are great lapidary slabs perfect for cabochon cutting. We have made every effort to pick high quality, colorful, solid, well-patterned slabs at every price range that will cut great designer cabochons. Many slabs are from well known locations and others are from more rare locales. Slab prices are determined by size, rarity, quality of color and pattern, and stability.

Slabs are measured by widest points across the face, horizontally and vertically, and by thickness. Most slabs are generally 1/4″ thick, and and they will be noted if they vary from that measurement. Any obvious fractures or imperfections will be noted in the description. The translucent slabs may appear lighter or slightly different in color from the originals due to reflected light when lit. All slabs are very lightly oiled with baby oil to better show their colors. Enjoy!
