Lapidary and uncut mineral and gem sources in Toronto?

Hi all!

I'm a new member, young designer with a small business located in downtown Toronto. I'm looking for someone who does custom stone cutting, and a source for uncut gems and minerals. Not looking to do anything fancy, or use stones that are very expensive. Mostly I'd like to make somewhat large, unusual, geometric pendants, with no facets. I was wondering if anyone here could provide some leads or sources? It would be much appreciated!

Thanks so much!

I don't know anyone in Toronto, but you could contact the Kingston Lapidary and Mineral Club to see if they know someone. Their website is www.mineralclub.ca
I also know people in Kingston who do custom cuts, I don't think they have a website but they have a facebook page - look for CSD Gems jewelry. And their phone number is 613 389-7467
If you can't find someone in Toronto it may be worth contacting them. They are very nice and I believe quite reasonable in price. They do unfacetted and facetted gems and minerals.
Thank you so much for this information, Yvonne! I will get in touch with them if I am unable to find anyone in Toronto. Cheers!
Hi Jaime contact Greg Fraser of Chan Fraser Designs>http://www.chanfraserdesign.com/us.html or David MacAleese> macwig@ica.net

Both are excellent cutters doing the sort of work you are interested in.
Hello Ken - thank you very much for these contacts! I will email them. I very much appreciate your help!
Hi Jaime:

Actually David's email is now macwig@primus.ca.
Thanks for the update Jennifer!
Hello,
I am a lapidary located in Toronto.
I do all kinds of custom cutting as well as faceting and inlays.
I also have a large inventory of rough gem materials.
If you need any work done please contact me at: 416-604-9888 or through my website:http://www.artisticjewelrydesign.com/
Looking forward to speak with you.

Hi Boris! Thanks for responding to my thread! I will give you a call this week.
Other local mineral and lapidary clubs include: Gem & Mineral Club of Scarborough (www.scarbgemclub.ca) and the Willowdale Gem & Mineral Club (http://www.ccfms.ca/clubs/WGMC/). There is a fine cutter with the Scarborough Club - whose name escapes me unfortunately - who specializes in Nova Scotia Agates.

Lapis Gem Lapidary Ltd., located in Yorkville, has very nice and unusual stones both finished and rough http://www.lapisgemslapidary.com/
Thank you very much for these tips, Dianne! I will investigate these options as well.
