  • SRB Stone Supplies - rough rock, slabs and lapidary supplies
    and have progressively been building up a stock of material see photo to the right of this text so although I don t stock equipment I can possibly help with the raw materials SRB Stones My aim is to supply good quality rough and slabbed pre cut rock at a reasonable price My workshop is only small but is equipped with a 10in slab saw vibrolap tumbler grindstones etc the most recent additions being a diamond lapping machine and 14in saw If you d like to take a look at the machines in my workshop click here Although space is somewhat limited the workshop also serves as a display area for the rock In addition to working with my own materials I do occasionally cut and polish stone for customers though at present I m unable to take on any additional work Visitors are always welcome although it does need to be by appointment and even if you re just curious about the hobby you d be welcome to drop by for a chat Just e mail or phone beforehand We are to be found just a few miles south of Cambridge Due to the high cost of postage I would much prefer that should you wish to purchase some rock you make a visit and select the material yourself but if that s not practical just provide a description of what material you re looking for and how you plan to use it and I ll do my best to supply your needs by post In this digital age it s a simple task to provide photographs to help you choose the most suitable pieces The following pages list the rough rock that is currently available and I hope that the descriptions provide a realistic impression of the quality

    we ll never see here but it still makes interesting reading I enjoy reading about the field trips into more remote areas of the US Photography is really good and is helped by the fact that all pages of the hard copy are glazed http www rockngem com Rock n Gem Published quarterly at a price of something like 12 00 per year 5 00 for the digital version this little magazine is as far as I m aware the only remaining lapidary magazine produced in the UK and I feel that we should offer our support It includes articles on lapidary minerals and fossils Although there s not always a great deal on the subject of lapidary it always contains something of interest A free copy can be obtained from their web site Printed on glazed paper with good photographs http www rockngem co uk magazine asp Gemstone and Mineral Data Book John Sinkankas ISBN 0 02 094100 5 No pretty pictures but lots of information on every aspect of minerals and gems Still available via Amazon Gem Tumbling and Baroque Jewelry Making Arthur Earl Victor and Lila Mae Victor If you want to learn the basic principles of stone polishing this is exactly what you need Originally published centuries ago and print quality is not great but seemingly it s still available Introduction to Lapidary Pansy D Krauss ISBN 0 80 197266 3 Ms Krauss is considered to be one of the major authorities on the subject This book covers tumbling cabochon cutting gem carving and faceting National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Rocks and Minerals ISBN 0 394 50269 8 National Audubon Society My copy was purchased on a visit to California Not much use for locating rocks and minerals in the UK but contains

    that will hopefully mean that this machine will last a while longer Trim Saw Manufacturer Picador and me and a friend Yet another iteration of this machine this being about the fifth The plastic chopping board that served as the saw table and the sandwich boxes that made up the water tank and splash guards have now been replaced by components manufactured in steel by a friend A much more serviceable solution The arbor was purchased from Picador and is driven by a washing machine motor It incorporates a 6 inch notched blade grindstone and a 6 inch sanding disc which holds a thick felt pad for polishing Vibrolap Manufacturer HC Evans Another machine that s unfortunately no longer available but a while ago I was offered a second hand unit that was in almost as new condition which means that I ve been able to retire my original battered and worn out machine The vibrolap is used mostly for flattening and polishing one side of sawn lumps of rock but I occasionally use it to polish slabs by sticking a weight onto the slab with BluTack or plasticine The photograph shows two slabs both weighted with rough sawn lumps of stone and a single piece of Brazilian agate during the polishing stage Diamond Lap Manufacturer Inland Until I acquired the 14 inch slab saw this was the most recent machine in my arsenal and I must admit that it s taken a while to get used to it having never used a flat lap before Ideal for polishing small slabs and when I get around to it I may use it for cabochons It s supplied with 4 laps of different grades and felt polishing pads though I tend not to use the felt pads as they seem to
