About Aussie Sapphire
Aussie Sapphire is a fully Australian owned online and mail order store based in Glen Innes, NSW Australia. This website is owned and operated by Lonewood Trust (ABN 43 886 804 046) trading as Aussie Sapphire. It is a family run enterprise owned by Andrew and Leah Lane with the help of our two young sons Patrick and Angus and our other behind the scene helpers Malcolm, Noeline, Peter (warehouse, packing, deliveries ) and Susan (book keeping).
Established in 1997, Aussie Sapphire started out as an online outlet for Sapphire and other gems from our Reddestone Creek Mine located on our Property. Early in our shop life we started adding Lapidary products - this grew quickly to become the main focus of the online shop.
We can now boast proudly about our massive range of stock and large customer base Australia Wide. We still have Gems but Lapidary Machines and Supplies are our main core business Today.
We usually operate 6 to 7 days a week and take phone orders from 7.30am to 5.30pm most days. You can arrange a visit to our warehouse - strictly by appointment only - please contact us first to make sure someone is available to look after you.
Sapphires have been mined on our property on the Reddestone Creek (NSW Australia) as a full time commercial activity since 1977. In 2009 we made the decision to finalize all mining activities - the end of an era but a 32 year lifespan producing some of the worlds finest Blue Sapphire is a great result.
The Mine site now is a private Fish Farm (one of our sons is a keen angler) and all the property is fully restored and under normal farming rotations again.
Aussie Sapphire is a Fully Registered and Insured supplier - we know that some online suppliers operate without complying with all legal requirements. Importers and resellers must have Product and Public Liability Insurance - cover often ignored by suppliers. MSDS safety sheets must be available for all appropriate products - we provide these online and by request so that you can comply with your OHS requirements.
For Gem Buyers:
We hold good stocks of faceted Reddestone Sapphire - as we were the last miners to operate this area, we have the last (almost extinct) Sapphire from this famous resource.
