About us

GemWerx is a family run business.  Taz (nickname for Terence/Terry) first became involved with gemstones and minerals with the formation of the Gatton Lapidary Club in Gatton Queensland around 50 years ago.  Taz , his Mother Iris, Father Ian and siblings Janelle and Shane were inaugural members of the club; Taz was the first Field Officer for the club.

Taz has cut many beautiful faceted and cabochoned gemstones in those 50 odd years after being taught the techniques by the inaugural President of the club, Mr Robert Twaite.  He has also collected many of those gemstones as well as some impressive crystal specimens over the years.

Taz, his Wife Dianne and Daughter Teressa  travel to Lapidary Club Gemshows throughout Queensland and Northern NSW. Check our event calendar to see where you can find our gemstones and gemstone giftware.

Taz and Dianne's Daughter Teressa also operates her own business (http://www.mystical-spirit.com) selling gemstones and mineral specimens.
