I recently bought items from several folks on e-bay. Three vendors that stick out for price, helpfulness, cost of and combining shipping and communication were: duck83311, stone clouds, cole5774 (The Wyoming Rock Shop), opalite_one (Oregon Rockshop) and 917jfs. 917jfs stood out in particular. He sends me a message a day or two after completing the transaction saying that he was taking a couple of dollars off the price because he found a crack that wasn't visible or listed in the description. All of these folks were really friendly and helpful. They had great rough and slabs too!
These darn rocks will be my eventual undoing. My wife says I'm obsessed.

rockpickerforever: Andy, that's just what I was thinking! Will have to check out all the (normally dry) washes in Ocotillo Wells next time out, see what has been exposed by the flash floods. Probably not until November... Wonder how Quartzsite fared?

dale: Hi I'm new, hope this is the right place to ask a question. I want smooth (no rough or sharp edges) pea gravel about 3/8" max., natural untreated stone, don't care about polish or look, just need the smooth stones. Could I buy stones or tumble them?
