I will bill S&H charges to your PayPal account once I have your order ready to ship. You MUST unblock cookies and popups for the PayPal site to work!

If you pick up your rocks here I can accept credit and debit cards.

Shipping and handling charges are approximately $12 per 15 lbs. (medium flat rate priority mail box) or $15 per 25 lbs. (large flat rate priority mail box). Shipping rates for light packages under a couple pounds (depending on where you are) are generally less that $10.

You MUST allow cookies and popups for the PayPal site to work! (I get complaints that Paypal is "broken" at least once a week. It is ALWAYS because your web browser and/or firewall is blocking information from Paypal) You MUST have a valid email address to use PayPal! If you choose to pay via eCheck, I will wait for it to clear before starting on your order.

Do not ever email anyone your credit card number! If someone asks you for it, they are attempting to steal it! If you email me your credit card number, it will likely be stolen since one of tens of thousands of bots will probably intercept any email that looks like it has a credit card number in it. I wouldn't know what to do with it anyway, that's what PayPal is for.

Under "Quantity" please put the number of POUNDS for rough, the number of SQUARE INCHES for slabs. In your note, specify any details like minimum size of slabs. I will calculate S&H charges and bill you once we get the order squared away.

Lapidary Slab and Trim Saw Coolant Oil

Forgive me if I go on a little rant first: I have had enough of junk and unsuitable oils being sold as acceptable for rock slab and trim saw lubricants. Mineral and vegetable oils are NOT suitable lubricants, they were never meant to be. They will burn when heated, leaving a impossible to remove sticky residue all over the inside of your saw. And coating your working parts and blade in the process. And WATER, EVEN WITH COOLANT ADDITIVES, WILL RUST YOUR SAW OUT. There's a reason why all the major saw manufactures specifically state that using water or water based lubricants in their saws VOIDS THEIR WARRANTY. Actual lubricating oils commonly used by some people, such as Pella A, Allmag, and similar, are toxic, period. They also aren't commercialy available anymore. You are not supposed to get them on your skin or breathe the vapor, which you will do every time you cut a rock. Even worse are used transformer oils that some tout as being the best: if there aren't the known cancer causing PCBs in them, they are toxic as all heck. If there are PCBs, you shouldn't even go near them. They are even classified as toxic waste and must be disposed of at a hazardous waste facility. Of course you never know how old the oil is so you have no idea if it has PCBs or not. And they all stink to boot.

So, here is what I am offering: Clean, straight from the barrel Shell Superla oil, it's the perfect grade for slab saw lubricant, with the exact viscosity needed to cool your blade, and doesn't get too hot or cause unnecessary wear on your blade and moving parts. It's an odorless, 100% non-toxic, food grade lubricant formulated specifically for lubricating machines that come into contact with your food (for example, deli slicers among many others). You can drink it if you want to (not that I would). Just ask my not-too-bright labrador retriever Buttafass. He drank from an open bucket I had in the shop (never do that again!). Although he caused a huge mess in the house (I'll leave that to your imagination LOL), he didn't even get sick (the vet also confirmed this). I am buying by the 50 gallon drum becase NO ONE sells it by the gallon or 5 gallon bucket (and I mean no one, I took a while figuring that out) .Something SIMILAR but not the same is the ROC-Oil you see for sale at least online for at least $30-$40 a gallon. That's a blantant ripoff, they are buying it in bulk for less than a quarter of that price. I doubt it's the optimal viscosity for slab saws.

My price is $19/gallon. That's a really sweet deal compared to other non-toxic oils.I am just trying to get some of the cost of slabbing many hundreds of slabs a year covered by offering it to you (really, I'm not making much on it at well over $750 a barrel). My cost to ship one gallon is too high (as in, double the price per gallon) so you must pick it up here at the shop, I am near Clackamas and Oregon City OR. I'll give you directions when I get the Paypal notice, or email me at the address above. You can pay via Paypal below or bring a cashiers' check. money order, or cash. Order here:

Superla Coolant Oil - $19/gallon (enter the number of gallons in the box that pops up)  align=

Thundereggs

Click on the name of any material for a sample photo!

SOLD OUT means I HAVE NONE. Please do not click on the Cart button if the Available Quantity says SOLD OUT. (Note: I often have slabs of material long after I have sold out of rough, so ask about slabs if the material says Sold Out). Please note the sizes of eggs - if it says large eggs then ordering 1 or 2 pounds isn't going to be possible! Slabs are sold by the square inch. For example, a 4"x4" slab is 16 square inches. Please Note:  I always have slabs available unless the Available Quantity says otherwise. For slabs, I only charge for usable material if the slab has unsuable portions (for example, thunderegg slabs have both unusable matrix and usable centers).

Many of the thundereggs below are fluorescent, sometimes very strongly, in shortwave ot longwave UV light. I note where some or most are fluorescent. For some examples from my collection CLICK HERE. NOTE: Due to the time involved I will no longer be slabbing thundereggs, so when the slabs run out they will no longer be offered.
