good rocks, pt. 1



My latest hobby is learning about and collecting gemstones & assorted minerals. When I say "hobby", what I really mean is "obsession".

I used to be fascinated by the different types of rocks, too. Had a little book and everything.

Ooh, this would look great in a book about starting a rock collection. I'm always picking up rocks because they are cool but then not knowing what to do with them later. Every time I move, I seem to leave a pile of rocks behind. -Cin

I still lug my rocks and specimens around with me whenever I have to move. I love my collection great and small.

It would be hard to choose the prettiest one. Neat hobby!

They're not rocks so much as crystals. And with the ones you have here (assuming these are the ones that you've already collected), you've got a pretty good arsenal of power there, buddy. Make sure you clear them of previous energy. Submerge them in sea salt for 24 hours (either in separate containers or one big enough so that they are not touching). Or let them sit outside on a sunny day and over night for 24 hours. Do this whenever someone besides you touches them. Wear a little pouch with whichever one has the property you need the most at the time (and you can combine them). You'll be amazed at what they can do. Just one of God's tools put here for us to use. Thankfully they haven't been outlawed yet. So don't eat them because if you accidentally choke on one, that could be the end of that! ;)

PS: Rose Quartz (the Heart Healer) got me through most of my life as I had many broken hearts. But I'm happy to say that since I've been married, I'm not even sure where my rose quartz has gotten to. Perhaps it found it's way to someone else who needs it more. That happens.

Oh you would love the crystal's Robert brought home last year from AZ, three, and two are orange, my favorite color!

... you and Andy Dufrense..!

This shows a patient, sort of inscrutable side to you Russ... good qualities to have, I'd say... ( but most of the time I don't know what I am talking about..!)
