About Us

Iteco, Inc. was incorporated by Paul Cory in Columbus, Ohio in 1987. In the 80's, Rhodochrosite from Argentina and Inlay Opal were the main product lines. After the re-opening of the Sweet Home Mine in 1991, our company gained sole distribution rights to all faceted and other gem production from that mine. This changed the company's direction slightly. In addition to our own specialities, Iteco, Inc. now provides gem marketing and distribution for various companies and individuals. Primarily, we assist mine owners in distribution of gem and near gem material that is mined as a by product of other mining operations. Because of our extensive production and distribution channels, we have been able to add other product lines over the years.

The company has been based in Powell, Ohio since 2001. Kelli Cory has been with the company since 2001. We attend various trade shows and club sponsored Mineral and Gem shows. You can see our show schedule posted on our website.

Our company has been featured/included in a variety of Trade Magazines including Lapidary Journal, Gems and Gemology, Rock and Gem, and Colored Stone Magazine.
