ABOUT US DIGGING

Mining Oregon Sunstone has changed dramatically over the last ten years.  In 2006 one of the large commercial miners had an optical sorter running with an estimated 85% efficiency.  Exciting stuff!  Mining efficiently, however, still requires some rub-a-dub-dub.  Lift the bucket, classify on a screen and pick out the gems from the gravel.  Notice my white Honda Civic and the 30 feet of screen.  That's efficient!

MINE DIRECT
We mine our sunstone at Sunstones, Inc. and at the Dust Devil Mine up in Rabbit Basin, Oregon. Our Mojave and African Blue Chalcedony, as well as our black drusies are purchased directly from the miners. Our other rough come from private collections and reputable dealers.
DISCLOSURE
Our policy is to disclose all treatments and enhancements of the stones we carry.

MATCHES
A perfect match pair is a mirrored image. A stone cutter achieves this by splitting the rough in half with a thin saw to reveal the mirroring of the pattern and color.

Although we sort through hundreds of stones to bring you the best match, some matches will only be close-to-perfect.

If you have any questions about a pair of stones and their match, give us a call (415) 533-0925 or e-mail Craig@matchpair.com

PRIVACY
We respect your right to privacy.  Your transactions with matchpair.com are confidential!  Your e-mail will never be given to another party.
