Hey folks! I have a couple of custom projects that I need material for and thought I'd try the community here first :)

I need at least one (though I'd like a second as backup) slab of black onyx (solid black, free of cracks/veins/mottling), typical cabbing slab thickness 1/8-1/4". I need to be able to cut an approximately 40-44mm round cabochon.

I also need a piece of clean smoky quartz to facet a 20mm round brilliant.

If any of you have any for sale, or know someone who keeps some around, please get in touch, and thanks!
-Phil

I have plenty smoky quartz. Did you say 20mm or 200mm? I still have to slab that other lapis for you, maybe we could meet Sunday or Monday?

Either works for me. The color of the smoky doesn't have to be super dark, just clean.
