Chrysoprase in Bougainvillea with friend
Aloha today will be my first day at  Denver Gem Show!
Excited to see old friends and to discover new, both within the mineral kingdom and the mankind who steward them.
I have spent a few days immersed in the stunning nature around the Aspen area of Colorado, connecting with visionaries, meditating al fresco and allowing the nervous system to unwind. 
There is still time to let me know if there are certain stones you are desiring in your life that I can source here in Denver.
Meanwhile enjoy a cup of tea with Sarah in the studio and wish me happy hunting.
with much love,
The Door is Open
