I love rocks! Here is my printer’s drawer display of some of my rocks. Some bought, some gifts, some brought back from places I’ve been. I even polished some of those in my tumbler. I would say, the best finds were in Alaska. I drove back with lots of rocks from there. Just gorgeous. I have lots of rocks around my house, in my car, on my desk, in plants, in my garden, everywhere. My kids love showing me the cool rocks they find, too. If I HAD to choose a favorite rock, I would say the magnificent agate. They are like little works of art. (Which makes me think… ooh, enlarged closeups of agates= coolness!) So many colors and patterns. I do like colored diamonds and fine gemstones too, but those are much more high maintenance (not to mention $$). Even though I have a fairly good collection of nice gems as well, I would say I’d be happier with a really cool agate than a giant Liz Taylor diamond. In fact, below is my favorite ring I made with an agate I got while I lived in Minnesota from a really cool shop that specialized in agates from Lake Superior. It’s nickname is an eye agate. Also below is a cool ring I bought for $20 (in a cheap, adjustable setting), but the stone is just awesome! I will have to make that into something else someday. Did I mention that I love rocks?
Rocks are old and wise and good listeners. I have been draging around a box of Superior agates for many years. Rocks and I are old friends.
Wish I could see! Glad to hear from a fellow rock lover!
Wow, what a splendid collection! I just have few gems, stones and shells; looking at them is always inspirational and calming. Now I feel like getting few more…
What a great collection and a great way to display them.
Thanks very much! I love my rocks 😉
