Howdy everyone! So, I'm trying to rearrange my house in a manner that best displays lots n lots of rock that I've hoarded so far. Had a number of acrylic risers that I've been utilizing and realized that I could use a ton more. I've been looking on eBay for anything acrylic such as risers, 3 and 4 prong geode holders, display cases, easels, etc. Not exactly cheap when you want to buy a lot of them. Does anyone know of a place that I could basically do some sort of bulk orders of these for reasonable prices? Thanks

For risers, try Nile (I personally like the frosted ones, that don't so easily show dust specks). They also have some display cases.


For easels and geode holders, try Shannon.

Cut some clear acrylic tubing into risers.  Use various sizes and if you cut one end on an angle you can support geodes nicely.  Very cheap and you can have custom sizes for every rock.
