Our team is excited to share details of a new place and program where we help you sell rocks, gems, minerals, cabochons and other lapidary art and jewelry.

As you may have heard, we've added to our brand community with the addition of MyRockHub.com, a sister site to RockNGem.com. MyRockHub is about supporting, inspiring, and empowering the global community of rockhounds. Our belief is, regardless of your area of interest, level of knowledge or experience, you are welcome and there is a 'seat at the table' for you in today's rockhounding community.

The exciting element of our MyRockHub site that will be live soon is the Marketplace. Our goal is to help anyone who seeks to sell rocks, minerals, gems (rough and polished), cabochons, lapidary jewelry, art, and natural carvings by providing a space to sell. The MyRockHub.com Marketplace is slated to be live by the middle of October 2019.

Most importantly, as part of your vendor membership, we will work with you and create individualized plans to promote your business and items you are selling.
