J-R Gemstones



-Currently in between projects right now-

Back in the summer of 2007, I was working on collecting loose gemstones as a hobby.  After starting as a collector, I became more fascinated with gemstones and what makes them so valuable.  The science involved on how natural crystals are formed, the artistic craft that takes an ordinary rough stone, and to cut and polish it into something that is coveted by man.  I have been studying the ins and outs of what makes a gem so unique, and how it makes us adorn them.  So up until the years 2010-2012 I was apprenticing under a professional Gemologist, getting first-hand experience on equipment such as Refractometers, Chelsea Filters, and Microscopes just to name a few.  After learning the trade over the recent years, I’ve started to become a Gem Hunter.  Since 2014, that is when I started taking up clients to help them achieve on owning their own gemstone that they can have set into a custom piece they can pass down. I am now a private-based Gem Hunter.

The current years we are often on the road rock hounding/gem hunting. Constantly increasing our inventory from common agates, petrified wood, calcite, to various quartz, beryl, tourmaline, Druzy just to name a few.  We even carry some locally found specimens and some gem grade chalcedony.

on our site is where you can see our exclusive private collection. From both the rough and cut gem, we sell both.  All stones we sell are natural with various treatments. Membership is free to join our website.

I am a IGS Certified Graduate Gemologist.
