Welcome to RTH

a lapidary arts forum community

For over 14 years, the Rock Tumbling Hobby Forum has been the internet's most important resource for lapidary artists, hobbyists, and rockhounds from around the world. Whether it's tumbling rocks, cutting slabs, polishing cabochons, wire-wrapping, or any other facet of the lapidary arts - we gather here as a helpful community ready to assist you as you learn and grow with us.

As of April 2017, through a community effort, www.RockTumblingHobby.com is under new ownership and we remain dedicated to serving the lapidary arts community for generations to come. Please help support us financially so we can keep the forum "ad free" from advertising banners served by the Proboards forums.
