Wondering if you live anywhere near Mason County,,,you can dig for blue topaz and smoky quartz.

In fact if you google "Mineral collecting in Texas" or "Rockhunting in Texas" you should be able to find some places to go if you're interested.

And if you're in east Texas :) you could always come we me on the next quartz dig.

Finally have some goodies to show! We attended a Crystal Faire, last night, and I had fun drooling over lots of pieces, though they were quite pricey. But these are what I came home with (plus a few other goodies I can't show as they are gifties!!).

Amethyst, Amber, Tiger Iron Heart (?), double terminated quartz point, flourite point, 3 Herkimer diamonds, Amethyst point, Bluestone heart, Jasper Heart, oval Lapis Lazuli and the creme de la creme...a gorgeous natural deep blue Lapis Lazuli smoothed and shaped almost like a woman wrapped in a shawl! Lovely altar piece. And here is a picture!

Yes, that was the beauty of the night, for me. They tried to convince me on a huge Herkimer diamond for something like 300.00. But it was dark and just didn't grab me with brilliance like the little ones did. The Lapis blew me away. It has very little of that gold glitter colour and no white, at all. I love the deepness of it and the soothing freeform which reminds me a lot of a pottery piece I did back in High School. We each had a clump of clay that we had to turn into something after smooshing it once. Mine was a freeform woman holding a basket and the back had her hair flowing down like waterfall into hollow (where my fingers had squeezed in). It is still in a display case there. I want it back, but I was stupid enough to donate it! So, this makes up for it!

lol I was the same way! They gave me a basket to put things in while I walked around and around the tables. I had the other goodies in it, but I was clasping the lapis figure to me. They asked me if I was still thinking about it and I said no, this was definitely coming home with me, but I just didn't want to let it go! They seemed amused watching me go from table to table, brushing over stuff that didn't interest me in the least and then curious as to what suddenly caught my eye or made me go "oooh!" and stuff in my basket! It was fun! That particular piece came from Pakistan.
