West Coast Mining has a claim there - http://www.wcmining.com/ though the web site seems to be undergoing reworking. I'm sure some people here might also have slabs or rough, too.

They also sell on Ebay.  Here's a link to their store:

http://www.ebay.com/sch/westcoastgems/m.html?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEFSXS%3AMESOI&_trksid=p2053788.m1543.l2654

They always have some up for auction.  I think there are 3 up right now.

Cut my first piece of this today.  Came out pretty good, but what are you final polishing with?  Ceranium on hard felt seemed to make it worse than the 10k wheel.
The appearance of scratches is just the work light rings.  Gotta figure out taking better pics.

Zurn - you're most welcome.  I have been buying rough from them for years and have never been disappointed.  As a matter of fact, I have some slabs I bought from them years ago that are in the "too pretty to cut drawer".  dancer5

Polishedball - I use CeOx on leather or I'll use diamond on a Tech-10.  I personally don't like felt because it generates too much heat for my liking.  I only will drag out felt when I'm having trouble polishing with all my usual suspects.  That's just me -- your mileage may vary.
