Very cool large piece of Microcline Woody! Would make a great display specimen for showing handcrafted jewelry and such.

Hi Denise,

So that big stone in the last pic is actually a single piece of Quartz. It has a heavy red stain and was very dirty, I guess I threw an unintentional curve ball at you. Here it is at the house all cleaned up. It has unusual, deep pitting on all the facets. I bet it
would react well to SOI. Might have to try it. If you think you could get some use from it let me know. I'll get it to you one way or another or I'll drop it off the next time I'm down that way.

have a good one, Woody.

Wow, that's a great Quartz specimen! Always hard to see what one has till it's cleaned up. biggrin.gif
Thank you, that's very generous of you Woody but I was thinking for you and the jewelry you're making now.

Nice find!!

Hey Mike,

Thanks! You and your brother ought to come down and visit me sometime when your in the Springs. I've got some "interesting" items setting aside that might challenge you guys. Every once in a blue-moon, I'll come a cross a specimen that just doesn't
fit in with the rest. Most I figure out in time, but over the years I've managed to accumulate some that's still eluded identification.

If you ever get down t his way, feel free to stop in. Woody.

Hi All,

Over the years I’ve had the pleasures of meeting many people who were interested in Crystal Gems and Rockhounding in general. Probably the most frequent question I have been asked is, “How did these items form?” recently I made a promise to
dig-up some literature which explained the process and made the development easy to follow. Here is a video documentary made by Novia that makes the entire process seem simple. It focuses a lot on the formation of Diamonds, but if you change
the ingredients of the molecule, then all the other gems form in a relatively similar way. I will warn you, the Video is 50 minutes long but I think it is very interesting and informative. It also introduces a new theory about the development of Plate Tectonics.

Enjoy, Woody.
