Face it, after awareness of dimes develops, when we see crystals as ledges, our perspectives, have changed... we see stone differently than others do.. post your own views of stone that please the eye!

So, I know this isn't quite what the thread is on, but here's how I'm seeing stone these days.

I'm learning how to make cannons for use in my jewelry, and also to sell, and this is my 5th piece.

And this one was the 3rd I've made. This rock came out of a gold mine in La Pas County near where I'm at in Quartzsite. It's Chrysocolla and Culpite in Quartz.
