    Is it the future yet? Sadly in this future, the parent star went nova, took out 11 planets and 23 moons, got to admit though, cool pressure wave. Click image for larger version

    Are any of these wonderful specimens Enhydrous?
    Exquisite colors and such obscure patterns.
    Thank you for bringing these to us to enjoy. MORE, MORE, MORE!
    Holding them must be delightful.
    Do you ever take the cut off and cab any of them?

    Posted by [painshill]:
    Extremely beautiful Bill... and I'm well impressed if you cut and polished those yourself.

    Posted by [rmartin]:

    To answer questions upthread, I do dig, cut and polish these, but don't slab or cab them. Also make my own saws and laps to prepare them.

      Perhaps we need a gem and mineral category for items like these?

      Bill, the only thing that exceeds the beauty of your rocks is your ability to photograph them!

      Posted by [Bill*]:
      Those are kind words Ray. You should have seen my first attempts to photograph rocks. Small fuzzy blob, in a huge field, with poor lighting. Life is a process.
      This egg is so rare and unusual, spherical structures with polka dots on top.

          This one is an all time favorite. Not bright colors, but in the beginning, zeolitic needles grew in the hollow cavity. They got encased in quartz. The needles dissolved away creating casts which then filled with agate. The resulting false form, or pseudomorph, is one in a million. Click image for larger version

                    We don't have those around here. We have geodes and stalactites in the caves. I would really like to own one. Thanks for the pics. Like I said, amazingly beautiful!

                        These are casts after aragonite. In tall profile they look like good n plenty candy, or a blunt elongated vitamin pill. The circular or ellipse shape is due to the orientation of cut, sort of like an end cut string bean. The structure, and shading to color change within the pseudomorphs makes this one special,

                          Just keeps getting better all the time! My wife and I have seen many hundreds of cut and polished slabs and geodes over the years, but we've never seen any this nice with such variety and no two alike. I'm with Ron in really liking that last one...
