Listen to this! Did you know that you can screen for your own gems in North Carolina?

Yes! That's right. Rubies, Sapphires, Topaz, Emeralds, Garnet's, and most of the Quartz Family can be found. All for just the price of admission to one of the "screen your own" sites.

That's right! All you have to do is take a little vacation to Franklin, North Carolina. There are still places that one can go and search out there own gems. Digging in streams can be done with permission from the land owner or gaining access from public access areas. You can go to a gem mine and screen your own. The price is cheap. Most of the mines only charge around $10.00 for the day, and around $1.00 a bucket upto $300.00 per drum of gem bearing earth and gravel. Some of the places add items to there buckets, and sometimes getting a good stone can be hard work.

UPDATE Several of the Pay per bucket sites have closed down in the past few years so finding a good non pay site may be the thing to do for the experienced gem hunter.

I have been going there for years and have collected several very nice stones. By the way, you can also find them in most of the stream beds around that area.

I use to have gem cutters in the area of Franklin cut my stone, but as time went by I decided that I could do it cheaper myself. They want someplace about $15.00 to $35.00 per carat. You stop when you have 100 carat of raw stone, just think what the cost will be to cut. It's not hard to get over 500 carat's worth of gems in a day of gem screening.

So I took the time to learn how to cut gem's. I bought the equipment and started cutting. I now have some very nice cut stone. I will cut your stone for a lot less than what they charge and I cut year round, not just during the summer season.

I got so involved that I started my own Jewelry Shop. I now cut for other people along with my stone. I cut and mount stone and do some custom jewelry work.

I keep a full line of mountings in gold and silver, and I have a full line of gemstones that are for sale. Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Topaz, Quartz, Rutilated Quartz, Smoky Quartz, Garnet, Amethyst, Cabochons, Opals, Peridot, Citrine, Lapis Lazuli, Golden beryl, and to many others to list here. I also keep a line of rough gems for re-sale to other cutters or collectors.

To see some I have made go to My Page 5: My Jewelry Page!
