This and the picture in the group profile is some beautiful agate I dug up outside of Lavic California which led to a vein, I dug up way more than I could carry. I was told to not sell it for much less than $30 a pound but it varies a lot. Posted in Rockhounds, Gem Club, Mineral Collectors, Lapidary group

I love rocks and crystals and have a nice collection. I also make jewelry and prefer natural stones. Here’s a pair of tiger eye and copper earrings I just made, with glass triangle bead dangles. Posted in Rockhounds, Gem Club, Mineral Collectors, Lapidary group
