Cabochons

PAGE 1

Many of these are from my personal collection of cabochons that I have cut for myself, most are agate, jasper, petrified wood, and miscellenous materials from Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. None of the photos are enhanced - indeed, the photos don't do these proper justice. Some are calibrated sizes and all have bevels to accomodate standard settings. Most of the freeform shapes are excellent for display, wire wrapping or custom mounts. I display mine in large Riker boxes, you can get them from some jewelry specific websites. If they have some issues (like extremely small, usually invisible, fractures), then I say so in the description. They are all have as high a polish as is possible and have no visible scratches. I am extremely picky about that. Any smudges are my greasy fingers, speckles are lint, not pits or scratches! All dimensions are in millimeters.
All pieces will be sent via USPS First Class Parcel mail

If you've recently visited this page, be aware that your browser may have cached the images and although all browsers are supposed to catch new images and reload them, sometimes they don't. So hit the refresh button below just in case to make sure you have the latest pics.
There's a simple fix for Firefox:
Type "about:config" in the website address box. This should load the Firefox config settings in the window for editing. You may see a warning message stating, "This might void your warranty!" (which is an in-joke, they don't have one), click on it to load the settings. Then search for the "browser.cache.check_doc_frequency" key and change it to "1".
For those of you who are looking for something specific in my for sale pages, such as when I list new items, I might have a solution for you. You may want to try this: https://www.changedetection.com, I think all you do is sign up and enter the address of the page, for example if you are looking for equipment enter http://orerockon.com/equipment_for_sale.html, and they should send you an email when I add something. BUT, it probably will send you a notice when I change one letter of one sentence on the page, so you might get annoyed by it at some point. It's a great way to track when I list new polished items, since I typically don't change anything until something sells and/or I add items, and equipment, which I never change unless I add new pieces or change the status to "sold" as they sell.

Cabochon 01 Larimar, Barahona, Dominican Republic I'm sure many of you are familiar with this stone, I sure am not! I believe these are fairly high quality cabs. All are under about 25 mm on the longest side. I'm pricing them by the gram which seems to be a popular way to do it. Each lot has 6 or 7 stones. I have 6 lots available and won't be listing any more. 15 grams

$20.00

YES
Cabochon 02 Cornflake Carnelian, Sweet Home, OR I'm sure many of you are familiar with this stone,it's very rare in collections. There used to be a fee dig area at the foot of Chandler Mountain, which is the source (now gated off by the timber company). The fee dig went away in the 80s and the mountain is off limits to collecting, so it's extremely difficult to find. It looks more like cornflakes than the photo shows! 25 x 36 freeform

$14.00

Cabochon 05 Tube agate, McDonald Ranch, OR This agate is one of a kind, from a now exhausted deposit on this ranch. The tubes are a little hard to see in this cab but they're much more obvious than the photo. 30 x 40 oval*

$14.00

YES
Cabochon 06 Glass Buttes Gold Sheen obsidian, Oregon This is the best gold sheen cabochon that I've cut so far. I hit the nail in the head (literally), the top of the dome is the bullseye and the sheen moves around and is bright gold however you turn it. The sheen is very striking when it's moving in bright lighting. Obsidian is a natural glass so it will chip if you bang it around enough. It will survive normal use in jewelry just fine. 19 x 51 freeform

$20.00

NEW
Cabochon 07 Glass Buttes Gold Sheen obsidian, Oregon In a broach pin setting. The sheen is very striking when it's moving in bright lighting. Obsidian is a natural glass so it will chip if you bang it around enough. It will survive normal use in jewelry just fine. 1 Cent WITH $25 PURCHASE from the polished rocks, fossils, and cabochons pages only. Please order only one 1 cent piece per order. 22 x 30 oval*

Cabochon 12 Holley Blue Agate, Oregon The queen of the blue agates, a must have for an serious agate collector. We dug this in the 1990s before the area was closed due to greedy people helping themselves to whatever they could grab even if it meant pulling up trees that the owner had planted. This lavender/light purple color is one of the most desirable shades. A few imperfections so the price reflects that. This agate sells for 50 cents - $1.00 a gram for the rough, so the cabochon prices naturally reflect that. 32 x 50 big freeform

$35.00

YES
Cabochon 13 Maury Mountain Moss Agate, OR This agate from the dead center of the state is well known in rockhounding circles. Intricate moss red, brown and gold moss. 23 x 49 big freeform

Cabochon 14 Chief Paulina agate, Ashwood, OR You wn't see much if any of this online, it's from the Jim Nartz ranch who allowed us to collect for 20 years. By now the pit is exhausted unless someone has some spare explosives lying around. 22 x 29 oval *

$10.00

Cabochon 15 Ribbon obsidian, Glass Buttes, OR Cool red ribbons deep down under the surface of the cab. 18 x 25 oval *

Cabochon 16 Bruneau picture jasper, ID THis is verl well known for its cool oblong overlapping orbs of color. From the Bruneau River canyon, what's left is embedded in concrete-like rhyolite and it's a Wild and Scenic River so it will never be mined again :( 31 x 43 freeform

$20.00

Cabochon 17 Tiger Eye, South Africa I see so much great material butchered on the web that it makes me a little nauseous. I know how to get the best out of this stone. Much brighter, chatoyant moving sheen in person, I can't post a video here because I have no idea how to do it. 25 x 34 tombstone!
