Gemstone spheres of all types and sizes. Mineshaft has a large range of gemstone spheres cut from quality gemstone rough. Our stock is constantly changing and this page is just a small representation of our selection.
If you look at this range you will appreciate the quality of our spheres. We either select the best available or we use the best rough available and have our gemstone spheres cut to order. We do not stock ‘run of the mill’ spheres. Often we only have one of any particular gemstone sphere or at the most just a few. The postage fee is the actual postage rate we have to pay and there are no handling charges.

Zebra Stone is a uniquely Australian rarity. It has been placed at 600 million years in the upper Proterozoic era or Pre-Cambian period. The only known deposits in the world have been discovered in the remote East Kimberleys, Western Australia. It consists of a fine grained siliceous argillite (indurated siltstone or clay stone) with rhythmic patterns of red bands or spots contrasting sharply with a lighter background. It is not known how the regular patterns were formed but the red stripes are coloured by ferric (iron) oxide.
