I have a few items made of lab sapphire in various shapes.
Most are made of clear lab sapphire and polished. Some may have tiny chips on their edges which can be polished out.
Some items and shapes are 5/8" x 1/4" x 3.5" clear, polished
sapphire slabs weighing about 45 grams (over 200 carets) each. Small clear lab sapphire disks, blocks, slabs in various sizes and shapes and a few larger clear, polished lab sapphire slabs. Many slabs were meant for use by NASA as
viewing windows for special lab experiments, but had a tiny nick on one edge and were rejected. Excellent clarity and no visible defects internally on these. Also have some whole and split boules in both clear and light lilac color.
(I use one small slab as a knife sharpener for my best knives. It will never wear out and will put a razor edge on any metal since its polished and thus capable of putting an edge on any blade finer than a razor.)
The disks might be perfect for use on a dremmel tool as a great grinding/polishing/cutting wheel as only diamond is harder and no-one sell solid sapphire wheels for this use.
The clear sapphire polished blocks can be cut into gems or made into small vise or press jaws capable of tremendous pressure. Might be able to use in a sissor configuration to cut any metal.
Many, Many uses for these custom sapphire items. Just the
cost of shaping and polishing these items cost the government a fortune.
I have a small variety of shapes and sizes available cheaper than the wholesale cost of a raw boule of the same material.
Pics available....call or email your needs and sizes?
Small Limited supply. Once gone, they're gone! Perfect for so many uses and experiments and at dirt cheap prices!
