Stone and crystal raffle

morticia monroe

Hey everyone it's that time.

I'm still having a blast with the tumbler, and just finished my second batch of stones. I am finding that it takes longer to tumble them than I had thought, but that could be because the stones I started with were very ragged and sharp instead of already having a little shape to them.

These stones have NOT been tumbled to round, smooth perfection. I prefer them to retain a bit of personality in their shape, I think they make better specimens this way. JMO. So they are imperfect, but beautiful.

There are about thirty of them here, I have identified petrified wood, rose quartz, agates, jaspers, tiger eye, calcite, unakite and what I believe to be bloodstone,,,also two pieces of tumbled milky quartz. The rest are anyone's guess :). I will also include a rough piece of larger quartz from the mine that I think looks better untumbled.

All in all, I'm pleased with the way they turned out and now addicted to the tumbling (my OH has challenged me to tumble the entire driveway, lol, The man thinks I've lost it. :))

There is a photo here of the stones you will receive, most are 1-3 inches across.

I have the Tarot of Gemstones and Crystals, so I thought that might be a good one to use for the drawing. I have listed the Major Arcana. Choose a card, and I will draw have my son draw next tuesday for the winner. I don't mind incurring shipping, so the contest is open to anyone worldwide.

Good luck!

Oooh, those are lovely!!! If I may ask, what kind of tumbler do you have? I'd love to tumble some of the stones I've found but I have no idea what kind of tumbler would be best or even if it's a lost cause to try.



Oh, I told you I would love to have some of these. So here I am. I choose


Beautiful work BTW.



Those are beautiful. I'll pick the Star (moldavite)for my daughter

Rufus, the tumbler I have is called thumlers tumbler. I bought the kit that came with the machine, the barrel, two rubber rings, grit, and a few stones.

You can google it and probably find it anywhere. It's pretty heavy duty and made to run for ages. Nothing is ever a lost cause,,if you think you'd like it, you should go for it! And when you run out of your own stones, you can buy boxes of rock for tumbling as well.

P.S. Don't you want to choose a card?


Wow, the stones look amazing, great work!!!! And how generous of you! :)

Hmm...I will choose Death, since I'm in such a stage of transition in my life right now! :):)
