Welcome to the Coast to Coast Rare Stones International website.

Coast to Coast Rare Stones is a cooperative of three full-time professional lapidaries with more than 130 years of combined gem cutting experience. We travel the globe in search of unique materials to interest collectors as well as cutting stones that are appropriate for setting into jewelry. We have been involved in the mining of colored gemstones including benitoite and spessartite garnet in California, tourmaline from Mt. Mica in Maine and Northwest Territories in Canada as well as a number of rarer species from all over North America. Our contacts within the gemstone mining industry make it possible to bring you the finest quality gems at the best price.

We are continually cutting.  If you have questions about any of the "inventory" or are looking for something in particular, please "contact us" with your request, email address and phone number. We update our site daily, so please check us often.

Welcome to the new Coast to Coast Website!

May 18, 2020 by John Bradshaw

We have the same great content with a new look and new features.
 
*Check out our new logo seen in the top left of the home page.

*Within the inventory listings, the view for each species now shows thumbnail displays with a larger photo than our old website.  Clicking on a thumbnail  will give expanded information and clicking on the photo again will isolate the picture.
 
*We have added a “Gemstone Info” link under the Glossary tab that will give gemological and other pertinent data on the gems that we supply.  This list will be added to over time.  If you have a particular gem that you would like to have listed, feel free to contact us.
 
*The three pictures on the home page will show some of our work or some of our travel and will be swapped out from time to time.
 
*Some of the menu items are also shown in the footer for convenience along with links to our Facebook and Twitter pages.

*Please sign up for our Newsletter (three or four per year) below to keep up with us!

*The website is now also mobile friendly on your tablets and phones.

As always, if you have specific requests, please let us know and we will do the best to source for you.  The website is updated daily with new stones added weekly whenever possible.

By registering on the website through the Login Page (icon to the right of “Contact Us” in the header) and then logging in, you can track current or past orders, change your password, etc.
