About Us

Alpine Gems is a family run business since 1972, providing high quality sculpting alabaster, gemstone/lapidary, and minerals and aquarium reef stone.  The business was initially P. Lamoreaux Gemrocks run by our founder Paul Lamoreaux, then renamed as Alpine Gems & Minerals after moving to the mountains of Northern Utah, later relocating to our much larger facility in Southern Utah at Summit, Utah in 1986, and finally as Alpine Gems LLC now run by Paul's family since 2010.  Our more than 49 years supplying Alabaster Sculpting Stone, means we have high quality, large variety and large quantity of stone for you to pick from.
