Hello I'm Ed Rigel, owner of Applegate Lapidary. I am 3rd generation in the lapidary field. I was born and raised in Oregon; digging before I could walk. I dig, collect and also purchase collections from around the world. I do all my own cutting and polishing (to a mirror finish) in my shop. I am one of only two people who have successfully imported petrified wood from Zimbabwe, Africa. I have wood specimens from Arizona, Blue Forest Wyoming, Hubbard Basin Nevada, Humboldt Nevada, Tuscarora Nevada, Elko Nevada, McDermitt Oregon, Utah, Cycad and Zimbabwe, Africa. If you have any questions or are looking for any rare wood specimens (collectors) feel free to drop me an email. Thanks and enjoy our site.
