Gregor,

Always willing to answer opal questions if I can.  :D

Gina:  That's too funny!  We actually sold 2 of the apache gold stones this morning.  We just put them up on the site in the last couple of days, so now we need to cut more (not that I'm complaining).  It's  a total mess to cut, though, so we went and got some disposable gloves to use.

Hi Mary Ann!

We were at the Sedona show.  We bought some slabs from you and Ralph.  :D  We're planning on going to Quartzite -- will you be there?

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Yep.  Chicago is a lapidary wasteland in terms of the amount of people actually cutting stones and the number of rock clubs around.  Everything is at least a 2 hour drive to get to and most people don't even know what the word lapidary means. 


There is the Lizzadro Museum and the Field Museum for displays, though.

Here in Prescott, I'm surrounded by people who love rocks as much as I do!

Hello all!

Glad to join this forum.  My husband and I are both lapidaries and love rocks.  We both started out cutting opal and actually met on an opal cutting forum.  I'm from Chicago originally (a lapidary wasteland), so it's refreshing to finally be in a place where there are more than a few rockhounds.  We belong to the local rock club (Prescott Gem and Mineral Club) and are involved in club activities as much as possible.  One of the club members is also an instructor at the local college, so we are also taking a lapidary class at the moment (basically for fun, although we have actually learned a few things).

We have a website that we maintain with all our goodies on it -- www.hummingbirdstones.com

I've been reading the forum the last few days and there are a lot of great tutorials that I need to try.  You all do wonderful things with rocks and I'm looking forward to joining in.

Robin
