Lapidary Rough for Plugs & Labrets

As I now manufacturer stone plugs and labrets in house I get asked quite often what materials do I have and great as it is to list all the materials I have it is usually missing the picture element and as material can vary from the area it is sourced from I feel that this is important part of choosing your new jewellery.

Here are the different types of rough I have available and some pictures of them so you can see what they look like. It is worth keeping in mind that some material varies greatly and the exact pieces pictured could have been used up all ready. If you have some specific colouring or patterns in mind please contact me with what you want made and these requirements as I am happy to search through my available pieces to meet your requests.

Pictures below are a mixture of dry and wet, I have wetted some slabs to show what the colour of the stone is likely to be when polished. If you want to see finished pieces of jewellery made from these materials take a look at my facebook page; http://www.facebook.com/BodyHazard
