~ Stone Story ~
Viewing this photo,
A song from the Sound of Music bursts forth in my mind...
"Climbing ev'ry mountain, Fjord ev'ry stream,
follow ev'ry rainbow till you find your dream."
Shattuckite, such a stone of surety, stability, balance...
and yet all of these qualities in service to The Exploration.
A solid foundation from which to launch.
A source reminder for far-ranging expeditions.
A touchstone for the dream...
"A dream that will need
all the love you can give,
every day of your life for as long as you live"

HONDURAN BLACK OPAL
Honduran Black Opal is rare and unusual.
A unicorn of the gem world.
This seemingly simple grey/black stone
flashes a rainbow of color when the sun shines on its face
allowing you a window into its mysterious world...
GEM SILICAGem Silica is a blue green and most rare variety of chalcedony...
A highly silicated form of chrysocolla.
This particular piece
came from high in the Andes of Peru
and it's color and quality are amazing...
