NEW! Glacial Crumble Ring

This is the first finished piece that I've made from the haul at the Hogg Mine. The stone is rose quartz that I cut and polished. I left a bit of the natural rough texture on top. Part of the stone has an icy-looking middle which reminded me of a glacier. Size 7-1/2.

Getting Dirty as a Pig at the Hogg Mine

Some other members of the Huntsville Gem & Mineral Society and I woke up *really* early and drove down to the Hogg Mine in LaGrange, GA. The weather was a little rainy, but that didn't stop us from hauling away loads of quartz, beryl, tourmaline, and a bit of aquamarine. I already want to go back!

This may be my new favorite stone. I know. I feel like I say that a lot, too, but Chevron Amethyst has a variety of colors layered upon one another with one of them being <gasp> AMETHYST! That band of pink toward the top with earthy greys transitioning to purple... Oh yeah... All gooooooood!
