For Valentines Day my husband bought me one of the 25 lb mixed obsidian specials. Obsidian is his favorite stone. It arrived today and the box was packed so full it was begining to split. The post master helped me tape it back together so I could carry it to the car. There's some really nice big chunks in there and only one has a serious fracture that I can see. If I pry it apart I'll still wind up with two nice sized chunks to work with. It was supposed to be mixed from different kinds including gold sheen and silver sheen but all the chunks have brown streaks so I guess it's all mahogany. No problem. I love mahogany obsidian anyway. All in all I'd say it's a really good buy at $7 plus $8.10 shipping.

Fossilman: Scott,do you have a greenhouse or what?? Or just warm enough temps in the winter months..Can't beat fresh spuds!!!
Mar 28, 2015 9:42:34 GMT -5
drocknut: I like fresh spuds too. Hard to grow anything in a travel trailer though. Yikes, 94 is way too hot. They are talking close to 90 here at my mom's so I may be hiding in the ac for a while.

snowmom: fossilman, I'm with Tammy. that's good stuff! Grapefruit juice is my favorite drink.
Mar 29, 2015 9:53:25 GMT -5
drocknut: I don't care for grapefruit juice, too bitter for me even with a lot of sugar added.
Mar 29, 2015 16:43:28 GMT -5
Fossilman: I couldn't drink it even if I did like it-bad reaction with my meds and grapefruit juice...
Mar 29, 2015 17:14:26 GMT -5
drocknut: I understand that, grapefruit juice does not mix well with lots of meds.
