Nevada and the Southern States (see other thread) are the next areas I'll be requesting images for.
`After these three states, I will be moving over into Wisconsin, Nebraska, and Minnesota.
We are now requesting images of material from the great states of Nevada for this thread. The images can be of rough, polished specimens, cabs, or tumbled stones. If you have any that you're willing to share, please post with a brief note on the region and its common name (if it has one.) Credit for the photo will be assigned to your name or online title (or not at all if that's your choice.)
Any material that fits under the heading agate/jasper is welcome to be posted here, even if it is from lesser known locations.
There are many places that would be readily known to people outside the state. We'd love to see samples of these. If in doubt, POST!
Now out (Aug 2013)!!!!! 2012 Agate Index: Vol 4 - Northern States: See thread in cabochon section!!!!!
Purple Agate: Definitely Nevada, probably around Henderson, Nevada. I know the collector so I'll see if I can get better information. Received confirmation from the collector Ron of Ron's Rocks. Location is Henderson, Nevada.
Christmas Agate: Black Rock Desert near Winnemucca, NV
Lowell, Can't see real well in the pic but I seem to see some of those concentric rings which would be Goldfield gem claims bullseye agate which is a highly silicified wonderstone/rhyolite so full of silica in fact so as to be pretty much agate or jasper....Mel

rockpickerforever: Thanks for the suggestion and well wishes, Ed. With the family all coming together, we'll make it through. Aging parents is something everyone has to face at some point. I know a lot of the RTH members already have or are dealing with it now.

drocknut: Jean hope you get in some rock therapy, the other kind is a bit expensive from what I've been told. Hang in there.

rockpickerforever: Thanks, Diane and tumbleon. Was just kidding about the other therapy, Diane, I'm doing okay. Trips to the hospital to see mom filling my days, not much time to play on the flat lap. But it's set up, so if I can get a minute...

wireholic: Does anyone know if there are gems/stones or even just colors associated with the 12 step programs? My jewelry is being displayed in a shop that specializes in "recovery gifts" and I'd like to tailor the jewelry to the theme.

mr.mohs: recovery stones are probably a subjective thing- but the 'Book of Stones' would be a good resource...
Mar 5, 2014 12:39:23 GMT -5
wireholic: Good idea! Not sure if I have that book but I think I have a book on healing crystals somewhere

The Dad_Ohs: If you don't find your book, you can look up most any stone online and get a metaphysical answer about the stone, what chakras it opens if it works better with other stones or alone, what parts of the body/mind it affects, all that long hair stuff !!! LOL
