Out of Our Mines® is dedicated to providing high quality gemstones
to the gem and jewelry trade.
Our United States and worldwide mining connections provide us with the rare opportunity to bring you the finest of nature’s treasures. With our “hands on” experience in all facets of gemstone cutting, from cabochons and beads to fine gem carvings and faceted stones, all of our gemstones are cut and polished to bring out the maximum that each has to offer.
As explorers, miners, and cutters, we are committed to bringing you one of the finest selections of natural and unenhanced stones, both new and classic. We hope our gems will inspire you and light up your designs with unique and diverse natural color!
Carving in both geometric and curvilinear styles, Richard Shull, G.G. transforms rough gemstones into miniature works of art that have been recognized worldwide for their design and attention to detail. These stones can be set in gold, silver, or platinum to create stunning jewelry pieces, or simply collected for their sculptural beauty.
Some of the oldest recorded objects made by human beings are beads. We offer a variety of heirloom quality single and short strand heishe and tab beads, drops, and focal beads in unique gem materials. Richard and Helen Shull do the entire process of designing, cutting, drilling, and polishing our gemstone beads right here in our Nevada, USA studio.
Find high quality, all natural, unenhanced faceted stones in American and unique worldwide gems here at Out of Our Mines! Our facet sets are meticulously graded and carefully matched for you. When you see our quality, you’ll be back for more!
We offer both free size and designer cabochons cut by us, as well as Fair Trade, precision cut, calibrated cabochons in standard sizes from our mines and more. We are Your Source for unique stones, and top quality, untreated, calibrated gemstone cabochons from turquoise to tourmaline and many more!

CUT WITH CARE
OUT OF OUR MINES® IS
dedicated to providing high quality gemstones to the gem and jewelry trade.
Our United States and worldwide mining connections provide us with the rare opportunity to bring you the finest of nature’s treasures. With over 30 years of “hands on” experience in all facets of gemstone cutting, from cabochons and beads to fine gem carvings and faceted stones, we cut and polish our rough gemstones to bring out the maximum that each has to offer.
How We Care
We revere and respect the land, the stones, and the people who work with both.
The stones you get from us to incorporate into your artwork, your special collection, or to simply wear and enjoy, have been filled with love, honor and respect.
Most of the work we do ourselves, but when we do get help, we make sure it is Fair Trade.
