If you guys want, we can purchase 100 lbs...........I can go and get it and then mail it out to everyone. What do you think? We can divide the cost amoung us...........I will pay the left over difference. I can mail the boxes out by flat rate. Just give me a list of what you would like and I can make sure we get plenty of each!
That sure is some of the breast best prices for bulk rough I've seen. Some serious mouth-watering material, makes me want to take out a loan and buy it all. Maybe my wife would let me take out a second mortgage on our house...or maybe she'd just have me move out of the house more like it .
Ewww! I'm no prude...but it'll be a cold day in hades before I buy from her! (for jumpin jiminy- I work in a bar...there's a strip club down the street if I want to see that junk) There's a time & place for everything & sellin rocks with melons don't do it for me!
liz opportunity is for the taking. Look inside yourself, you'll see. Then go clean up your own backyard...leave my yard to me. rossington collins band.

She needs to sell rocks to fund her breast reduction. I gotta admit, she does have some nice rocks for sale. I'd love to get some of that brecciated jasper, just can't afford the 100 pound minimum right now.
The reason they say 'Women and children first' is to test the strength of the life boat
Wow! That's some nice looking stuff there! The leopardskin does look like the good old material that was much more silicified than most of what we see now and the Brecciated Jasper looks like the old stock Tabu tabu ( forestfire) material that is really nice. And Oh my, would I love to be able to afford all that Rutilated quartz and rainbow obsidian! Really pretty stuff.....mel
Depending on whats bought, (would love a variety), and how much is bought, (would like a good supply), and shipping, (flat rate is kewl),then............. I am in also. ;D Let me know who, what, when and how.
I dont know, Did you guys read her home page on why shes getting out of the biz? sounds fishy to me eitherway. I never bought from her before, and seen her boob auctions many times, thinking. Hey thats good marketing to all the old codgers in the rock and gem markets. Im with MEl, to me the Rutile and Rainbow is worth her asking price. But i myself cant afford her miniums right now unless we all did a bulk buy. The Urugray agates are nice too, but thats all i see as marketable in my opinion. MAybe slabs of that Amazon jasper, but ive personally seen many vendors pushing that rough on ebay and other places. And that Breccaite is nice, but the last jaspers i got from Kim were almost as nice in my opinion. Keep us posted if anyone does try to do a bulk buy, i will help, but like i said. My interests would be for only Rainbow Obsidain and Rutile quartz. But at $1650 for the RAinbow, and $4400 for the Quartz. I think we all gonna pass personally. But i bet she have to move them some way at Quartzsite or Tucson if she cant move them online. ANd giving what her home page reads. I personally dont want to be caught up in a lawsiute becasue i buy her materials. Are they ever hers? THats what her Home page gives off to anyone that reads it in my opinion. And why also she hasnt been able to sell them yet. NO professionally needs that risk to take, or have to wonder about.
I have been corosponding with Teresa. This is what I have offered her. 15 lbs of gold rutile 15 lbs of silver rutile 15 lbs of leopard skin jasper 15 lbs of blue quartz 20 lbs of rainbow agate 20 lbs of brazilian agate All for $225.00 and I pick it up. I have not heard back from her yet. PM me if you are in on it so I can divide the charge up. If 10 of us join in, thats only $22.50 each. I will eat the cost of the gas to go get it. I will let you know as soon as I know if she accepted the offer.
rockpickerforever: Fossilman, making a nice hot batch of the Jalapeno jelly today, yum!! Can't get enough of that stuff! Might go out and use the stove in the trailer, so I'm not breathing chile pepper fumes all day, lol.

rockpickerforever: Oh, I should mention... Cold here is maybe down into the 40s. Not that below freezing or below 0 type of insanity. Who can live in such a place that has those temps? And all that white stuff, uggghhhh!
Feb 26, 2015 11:11:22 GMT -5
drocknut: Chili pepper fumes, one way to clear out the sinuses..lol. I can handle the cold (btw 40 doesn't count as cold yet) but that hot stuff you call jelly geez how can you eat that...lol.
Feb 26, 2015 12:16:47 GMT -5
rockpickerforever: Diane, it's not the sinuses, the fumes make you gag and your throat burn. Trying to be considerate of poor, sick Lucy. Diane, you just don't know what you're missin. And yes, considering what it costs to live here, 40 degrees IS damn cold, lol.

edmohs: I'll just be grinding in the rain this weekend. And if you heard my singing it sounds just the same. rain or no rain...mostly

Fossilman: Tammy just made up a batch of Habanero jelly last week...........Yes,it clears the house for awhile...LOL Love that jelly too...Taking a jar or two to Roy's today..
Feb 27, 2015 10:14:32 GMT -5
rockpickerforever: Fossilman, that jalapeno jelly came out smokin' hot, the hottest batch yet. Close to being too hot, maybe?? The jalapenos give it that great flavor, add about ten Hot Black Cobra chilies for heat. Need to eat it with something to avoid stomach ulcers.

rockpickerforever: The rain is a'coming. Supposed to get cold, windy and wet tonight, and stay that way until Tuesday. Yep, field trip to Himalaya Mine on Saturday has been postponed... edmohs, okay to sing, mostly, but stay out of the rain! Grind 'em, baby, grind 'em!

Rockoonz: Our rock club lapidary shop is now in a building with lots of handcrafters and artists, across the hall is Honey Mamas organic fudge, sweetened with honey. My favorite has cayenne in it.

rockpickerforever: Jim, ever heard of "hurts so good?" Just kidding. My jalapeño jelly is hot, but not 3-alarm. Snowmom, what kinda brownies did ya make?

Feb 28, 2015 10:38:13 GMT -5
snowmom: jean, they are plain with powdered sugar on top, son has "bodfl" and ordered them that way.
Feb 28, 2015 11:32:26 GMT -5
snowmom: Bodfl is 'brownies on demand for life' my life or my ability to keep making them. Very few people have bodfl
Feb 28, 2015 11:32:56 GMT -5
snowmom: my other specialty is fudge. nobody has fodfl..
Feb 28, 2015 11:35:10 GMT -5
drocknut: My grandfather made wonderful fudge. We kids got to help him mske it. Fun memories of him.

Pat: rockpickerforever 's jelly is the best! I make peanut brittle, and peppermint bark. Used to make caramels (yum), but can't handle the butter anymore.
