Have a bunch of rocks for trade/swap. They are approx. between 1/2" to 1" cubed.
Got a bunch of stuff and these are the smaller pieces.
Maybe some of you use smaller stuff for cabs for rings, earrings, bracelets, whatever.
To small for my old hands, so looking to trade for bigger pieces.
Say approx. 1" wide by 1 1/2" long by 3/4" thick. Bigger if you have.
But not to thick. Only have a 6" trim saw.
Not looking for even swap. Willing to send more that get in return.
We both pay the postage to each other. Not looking for any cash.

Preferably in Canada, Ontario more preferable, as shipping outside Canada
would be really expensive and probably not worth it.

Anyway this is what I have extra. Piece count is approximate. Didn't count the
really smaller ones. This is what they were described as when I got them.

Apatite, Blue, Madagascar – Approx. 20 Pieces
Aventurine, Green, India – Approx. 35 Pieces
Aventurine, Peach, Asia – Approx. 25 Pieces
Aventurine, Red, India – Approx. 15 Pieces
Aventurine, Yellow, Asia – Approx. 12 Pieces
Beryl, Aquamarine, Brazil – Approx. 10 Pieces
Bloodstone, Asia – Approx. 35 Pieces
Chrysoprase, Green, Madagascar – Approx. 25 Pieces
Diopside, Russia – Approx. 25 Pieces
Hematite, Madagascar – Approx. 18 Pieces
Imperial Z, Green, Asia – Approx. 25 Pieces
Jasper, Black, Asia – Approx. 25 Pieces
Jasper, Chestnut, Madagascar – Approx. 25 Pieces
Jasper, Crocodile, Madagascar – Approx. 20 Pieces
Jasper, Desert, Madagascar – Approx. 12 Pieces
Jasper, Elephant Skin, Asia – Approx. 30 Pieces
Jasper, Green, Asia – Approx. 30 Pieces
Jasper, Green Worm, Asia – Approx. 25 Pieces
Jasper, Heena, Asia – Approx. 22 Pieces
Jasper, Sunset, Madagascar – Approx. 12 Pieces
Jasper, Tiger, Asia – Approx. 25 Pieces
Jasper, Yellow, Madagascar – Approx. 20 Pieces
Labradorite, Multi Color, Madagascar – Approx. 10 Pieces
Lapis Lazuli, Afghanistan – Approx. 10 Pieces
Opal, Green, Madagascar – Approx. 12 Pieces
Rhodonite, Madagascar – Approx. 20 Pieces
Sodalite, Brazil – Approx. 22 Pieces
Sunstone, Asia – Approx. 18 Pieces
Tiger’s Eye, Gold, Brazil – Approx. 18 Pieces
Unakite, Asia – Approx. 18 Pieces
Zebradorite, Madagascar – Approx. 12 Pieces

Nothing outstanding, at least to me, so don't expect treasures.
Sorry, don't have pictures. Camera on the bum. Have to get another soon.

Let me know what you want, if interested, and what you have to trade.
If you have questions will do my best to answer.

Hi James
The only thing that I have to trade that you might like is some crazy Charoite. I will PM you in the morning.
