Lapidary World is a totally non profit website. (See more details below.)
We provide as many free services as possible.

Making ends meet and to provide an ongoing service well into the future has
costs which must be met in one way or another so we are always grateful for
any donations people can make toward building this site and to provide an
ongoing service well into the future. It's a great interest and I think you'll agree
that this site does a lot to help keep interest within all the areas of this hobby.

Governing Document


Please note that current Australian law doesn't have provisions for individual
businesses to be listed as non-profit only registered companies, even though this is
the way I operate this website. I make no personal income from producing this
website or for any of the free services offered.

All access to this website is free to view and all costs associated in maintaining and
providing any free services is privately funded by myself. I do accept donations,
sponsorship, and have advertising only to recover costs and expenses. But no
money received is used to pay for any profit, wages or personal income. I offer free
website pages for any Australian club associated to Lapidary on a 100% no cost
basis. My ABN: 34 027 969 321
