My grandpa and grandma were married for more than 60 years. She died just last week. During their long life together they went rock hunting and even cut their own stones and made their own jewelry. I thought it would be nice to share with some of you. I miss my grandmother, but I guess part of her is always with me. I definitely inherited her expensive taste! Their work even won awards. I'm hoping that grandpa will teach me how to cut stone. He said it's hard for him to do without his wife. He cut and polished the stones - It was her eye that told him when they were perfect and ready to set. *sigh* I hope you enjoy looking at the lovely work they created together. Tiger's Eye Malachite Petrified Dinosaur Bone (how cool is that!) I don't remember what this one is called - it looks like some sort of agate or jasper. Rhodonite (Thanks chaz!!! I'll remember this forever now!) Rhodochrosite (my favorite) Another Rhodochrosite I'll post some more...not sure how many pictures I can do in one.
