Four bags of “rough” arrived today. I had five pounds of Amethyst, Flourite, Lapis Lazuli, and Labradorite in raw small rocks (1″-2″) arrive. I have been waiting like a kid for his holiday gifts.
I have the stones and crystals I work with in art projects, but really nice pieces get saved to the personal mineral gallery. Some of my collection is stuff I have looked for hunted down. The best ones I run into when I am not expecting it.
These are a few of the nicer pieces from the haul.
So if you end up visiting me in San Francisco, be prepared to see a lot of Amethyst, Flourite, Lapis Lazuli, and Labradorite!
