Gemstone Carvings

These gemstone carvings are hand carved by master carvers. We use all types of semi precious gemstone materials and have carvings of all types. Mineshaft has direct contacts with several master carvers in different factories in main land China. We often use our own selected gem rough to make our own special carvings. We also have several carvers working on softer material such as fossil mammoth ivory and amber in Bali, Indonesia. The gemstone carvings here are just a small representation of our constantly changing stock. If you collect gemstone carvings of a particular theme, or gem material, send us an e mail and we will send you pictures of what we have. We will try to keep this section as up to date as possible so most of the carvings will be available for purchase. The postage fee is the actual postage rate we have to pay and there are no handling charges.
