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 the Lane family (ABN 84 731 562 254) trading as Aussie Sapphire.
Established in 1997, Aussie Sapphire started out as an online outlet for Sapphire and other gems from the Reddestone Creek Mine located on our farm. From the early days of the business, we started adding lapidary products - this grew quickly to become the main focus of the online shop. Since the closure of our sapphire mine in 2009, Aussie Sapphire has become a dedicated lapidary supplier.
After almost two decades of growth, Aussie Sapphire has become the largest lapidary supply shop in Australia with a massive range of stock items and an Australia-wide customer base.
Hours are normally Monday to Friday 8am to 4pm - please note that we are an online business and email is the preferred method of contact. If we are busy taking other calls, you will be redirected to the answering service - please leave a detailed message and we will get back to you - however, email is by far the most efficient way of contacting us.
Aussie Sapphire is a working warehouse and most products are not on display. You can arrange a visit to our warehouse to pickup orders - strictly by appointment only - please contact us first to make sure someone is available to look after you.
Sapphires were mined on the property "Lonewood" 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 has now been fully restored and returned to full farm production. At the end of 2012, we sold the property and shifted "Aussie Sapphire" to our current location on the southern edge of Glen Innes where we have built a dedicated warehouse and distribution centre.
