These little mini-planets are just some of the gemstones I have in my inventory.

I have others that are ready to go also, plus many more pieces in the works.

Chrysocolla, 52mm/2.07"

This stone gets its geen and blue color from a high copper content. It has a propensity for mixing with Malachite, Quartz, Azurite, Cuprite, and other minerals. It is rarely found in a single color. A chunky mix is most desirable.

Planet Peacock #1677...................$172

Amazonite, 54mm/2.12"

This stone is rarely found in this Robin's egg blue color. More usually it's found in a minty green or blue-green. The lacy white background pattern also gives it the appearance plus the subtle texture of dragonskin. A unique and rare find.

Planet Raptor #1529.......................$111

Smoky Jasper, 50.6mm/1.99"

A classic size and a perfect polish team up for a really fine gemstone shift knob. This neutral gray color adds a touch of rusty red on each opposite side for a little extra character. Subtlety could be the more classy choice in some cases.

Planet Ember #1547..........................$89

Rhyolite, 50.2mm/1.97"

Also known as Rainforest Jasper when it has a green color. It's actually a lava formation and not formed of volcanic ash which is more typical of Jasper. As the lava slowly cooled, the gas bubbles eventually filled in solid with silica.

Planet Camo #1582...........................$92

Green Adventurine, 50mm/1.96"

Often mistaken for jade because of the color and buttery finish, this gemstone is different but equal to jade in beauty. It can be found in a few other colors, all of which exhibit a similar inner glow and fine grain.

Planet Krypton #1648.....................$115

Golden Tiger's Eye, 50mm/1.98"

This piece is banded with a pattern of caramel colored woodtones combined with flashes of iridescent gold stripes. A classic walnut shift knob is a distant second compared to this beauty. What a classy way to upgrade your interior!

Planet Saturn #1581......................$169

Banded Peach Jasper, 49.3mm/1.94"

There's no mistaking this stone for a lump of plastic. The layers of volcanic ash from multiple eruptions have rested undisturbed for millions of years to now become a centerpiece for your vehicle. Spirits of eons are held in your hand.

Planet Jupiter #1706.......................$107

Volcanic Lava, 49.9mm/1.96"

Straight from Mother Nature's forge to your floor shift lever, this is one, "cool" shift knob. It's covered with the tiny pits made by myriad gaseous bubbles which cause it to have a subtle texture and organic feel in your hand.

Dwarf Planet Ceres...........................$97

Aquamarine, 56mm/2.21"

This is a very striking stone of the beryl family, which also includes Morganite, Emerald, Yellow Beryl, Heliodor, Bixbite and Goshenite. Definitely a "20 Footer" because everyone who can see it from that far knows it's not a lump of plastic.

Planet Waterworld #1200...............$255

Blue Denim Sodalite, 50mm/1.98"

Multiple shades of blue with splashes of white on the bottom half are inviting as an old pair of jeans and just as comfortable in any vehicle you wish to use it. This gemstone is usually found with a mixed matrix of blue colors.

Planet Storm #1583........................$155

Pyrite/Hematite, 57.4mm/2,26"

A striking feature of this piece is the lustrous sheen that gives it a silky glow. The matallic, mineral matrix is a hefty, little cannonball at 14.5 ounces or 410 grams. It was called "Healer's Gold" or "Apache Gold" in old times.

Planet Underverse #1572...............$156

Picasso Jasper, 50mm/1.95"

One of the earliest stones used by early cultures for ornamentation, Jasper was probably picked up from shores and stream beds where the tumbling action and the wet shine encouraged further shaping and polishing.

Hades Moon #1546.........................$175

Petrified Wood/Dinosaur Bone, 2.16"

Here are two fossils combined into one orb to create an exclusive, unique shift knob. You can plainly see the agatized fossil wood grain and the cell structure of the bone fossil inlayed on top. Great age combined with great beauty.

Two Giants #22...............................$225

Petrified Wood, 49mm/1.92"

225 million years ago, a tree fell in the forest and no one heard it. But the tree was very real as is proclaimed by its agatized remains. I garantee it will last an additional 225 million years. A blend of gray-tan sould be a perfect accent.

Planet Timber #1564.......................$149

Stromatolite Fossil, 54.2mm/2.13"

This is a fossil of the first and longest lived life on earth. It is a caynobacteria that grew in califlower shaped colonies dominating the tidal shores for billions of years. This organism is credited for the oxygen in the air that we breathe.

Planet Dragon's Breath...................$115

Picture Jasper, 50.3mm/1.98"

With a little imagination you can see mountains and landscapes made by the brushstrokes of Mother Nature. In early history it was prized for carving into amulets and ornamental figures. And now, today, it's used as a shift knob.

Planet Dry Rock.................................$88

Nickel/Iron Meteorite, 50.1mm/1.98"

The crosshatch Widmanstatten pattern is your assurance of a genuine iron meteorite. This can only be formed in 0 gravity as the molten iron cools over millions of years in total vacuum. The pattern can't be reproduced on earth.

Planet Core #A7....High 3 Figure Offers?

Surpentine Gemstone, 59mm/2.34"

Green is the most common color of this gemstone but other colors can also be found. Note the size listed because this is a larger shift knob and really fills the hand. Found in a few places around the world, this example came from Peru.

Planet Romulus #1620...................$199

Pietersite, 56mm/2.22"

Also called "Tempest Stone", Pietersite is a recent discovery first found in 1962 in Namibia, Africa. This one is deep wine and white but mixes of other colors are found. Another source was discovered in China in 1993.

Planet Mongo #1573.......................$149

African Turquoise, 50.3mm/1.98"

This stone is a clever impostor and is actually a type of Jasper and not true turquoise, but is a much more care-free stone that can stand up to skin oils, cosmetics, and hand creams that may be issues with Turquoise.

Planet Rainforest #1634................$139

Jaguar Skin Jasper, 50mm/1.94"

How fitting that this gemstone comes from Peru, where the Jaguar forests are found. First the brown jasper was formed, then broken into rubble by tectonic activity and reformed again with the lighter colored background.

Planet Jaguar #1554........................$95

Snake Skin Aragonite, 53mm/2.10"

Caramel, brown and cream honeycomb pattern creates an unusual look to this gemstone shift knob. It is formed in the hot mineral springs of the west over long ages of time. It's called "The Spirit Stone" by our Native Americans.

Planet Sidewinder #1520...............$149

India Agate, 50.5mm/1.98"

The most colorful agates are found in India. This lovely piece is a stormy teal color and is a great example of the type. Smaller chips are often used in earrings, pendants and ring settings but the impact is multiplied by this size.

Planet Tamil Nadu #1632...............$145

Petrified Wood, 58mm/2.31"

Trees were already giants of the Earth when the first dinosaurs saw the light of day. It's quite common that plant and tree fossils to be far older. This piece is possibly a type of palm but a very fine grained and dense variety. Jumbo size.

Planet Oasis #1644.........................$105

Pietersite, 51mm/2"

Also known as "Tempest Stone" due to the stormy, twisted pattern and swirls of color. There are only a couple of locations where Pietersite is found and prices are going up as the supply goes down.

Galaxy Center Nebula #1592.........$133

Birdseye Ocean Jasper, 57mm/2.26"

Circles of frosty white sprinkled over a woodtone background combine for an outdoorsy, neutral statement. It would be at home for a day at the beach or on your favorite offroad trail. It's about the size of a cueball to fill your hand.

Planet Rime Home #1680...............$167

Apatite, 55.7mm/2.19"

This is a very nice quality example of this stone. The chunky, peacock blue crystals are translucent pools while the lighter, powder blue areas shine with an iridescent glow. Overall, it has a very "gemmy" effect and impact.

Planet Peacock #1744...................SOLD

Coral Fossil, 50.1mm/1.97"

This ancient colony of sea bed life has been frozen in time by Mother Nature to be the basis for this unique relic from the past. Now it's reserected to new life and purpose to grace the interior of a vehicle with its natural good looks.

Planet Barrier #1559.......................$135

Seabed Fossil, 50.1mm/1.97"

This is a record in rock of multiple sea creatures, petrified in a point of time at the bottom of an ancient inland sea. It remains as a testament that they once lived and died. This knob is a contrast of the ancient with the age of vehicles.

Planet Seascape #1659.................$127

Black Plumite, 53.8mm/2.12"

This is one of those cases where the photo tell it better than the words. The stone is evenly scattered with circular dots like translucent "pools" of water. Most are an Opal-like light blue but there are also some red or green tints.

Planet 10 Thousand Lakes............$111
