New & Used Lapidary Equipment for Sale

Discount Lapidary Equipment Supplies Online Offers A Variety Of Items That May Not Be Available Close To Home

A lapidary is one who creates decorative items such as jewelry from polishing, cutting and otherwise designing rocks, stones, gems or other natural material. While this type of equipment is available around the world, not every city or region has a local shop. Whether for the hobbyist or the professional, lapidary equipment supplies online is a good option for where to buy.

This field of art encompasses a large area of equipment and while some is relatively inexpensive, other more advanced machines can be quite costly. For the beginner, you may want to take classes from a local enthusiast or even a community college to see where your interests fall and learn what you want to produce. As your interest and expertise advances, you can purchase more developed tools.

If you admire nature and are a stone collector, you might first like to start with a rock tumbler. From beginner to advance models, rock tumblers can turn plain rocks into polished gems. Different sized barrels hold different amounts or weight in rocks and some tumblers are adjustable to accommodate more than one barrel size. As the name tumbler implies, the rocks are gently tossed or tumbled for a period of time, washing away the years of sediment with a grit or polish chosen for that particular batch, be it soft or hard stones.

There are a variety of drills, saws, wheels and discs used to cut the polished stones into various shapes including cabochons, cameos and faceted designs. These can be sized to fit belt buckles, pedants, rings, earrings and more. It does take practice and you probably don't want to work on your most prized rocks at first, but through classes and hands-on experience you can learn to develop some real works of art.

Many people interested in collecting rocks and lapidary work, are in it for life. It is a hobby that most cannot give up. There are gem and mineral clubs all over the world, as well as online discussion groups. Some clubs sponsor trips to different locations for collecting raw materials. Many people take their annual vacation hunting for rocks in new locations.

Passed on from generation to generation, rock collecting and lapidary work becomes a tradition that young and old alike can share. Hobbyists are feverous about their finds and will trade with others in their group or club, or even ship rocks around the world to each other. They may put together new displays for local gem and mineral shows every year.

Being a lapidary has other benefits as well. You can create beautiful presents that will last a lifetime and who doesn't like a personally created gift?
