Gemstone Cabochons

$2.00 - $36.00
Gemstone Cabochons

Locally cut and polished by Nebraskan artist Ben Darling (my dad!). Perfect for wire-wrapping, jewelry, or laying out on an altar. These are even sized for jewelers, meaning you can have your favorite artist set into a ring, earrings, or bolo tie!

These cabochons are sold based on rock type and shape, as well as some grouped sets. "Pairs" all indicate matched stones that would work excellently for earrings or full jewelry sets - and many sets are cut from the same stone.

Feel free to contact with questions. Note that as handmade products, variations will occur in lots and individual rocks. All sizes listed in millimeters (mm).
