    Question Sourcing faceted cabochons

    I love the faceted cabochons, especially lemon and rose quartz, but I am having a lot of trouble sourcing them in the UK. They are readily available in the USA, China, and other far away places but that then means import VAT and associated Royal Mail charges. Limiting each purchase to under the VAT limit means I can only get approx 3 at a time.

    Buying from abroad means long delvery times. I have tried the well known suppliers like Manchester Minerals, Marquise Jewels, Kernocraft etc, but none stock them, and have googled galore. None of the suppliers seem to be in the UK

    Can anyone recommend UK supplier that stocks them, or one that takes custom orders?

    Have you tried calling Ward Gemstones?

    Coincidentally I found WARD mentioned in another thread, rang them and they do have them, and at a reasonable price, so I am delighted!

    AE Ward would've been my first port of call, great selection of stones and a variety of price points. )

    Excellent service too, btw
