Hey y'all.
I was going to take a few nice specimens of Rutile from Graves Mountain. As I thought it would be cool in the Graves Lapidary display.
 Jr Norman was loaning me a couple of top Rutile specimens for display.
 Graves at Graves ... You know.

Well Jr called and offered a bigger nicer display if I wanted.

I call Peter at Graves. He says sure. We can put up a lighted cabinet it should go well.

Jr calls back and says he has um ready. Then he tells me there is $XXX,XXX.xx worth in specimens. Big scary #.  He has included some museum and other world class collector specimens for the display.
So this will be a once in a lifetime showing of Rutile from the world famous Graves mountain.

Jr promised he is sending some pieces that will have any collector from anywhere in the world coming to the Tucson show drooling.

I can't wait to unwrap them and put together the display.

Please take pictures if you can so we can also enjoy the beauty of the stones:)

One day I am planning to come dig at Graves Mountains too. I can dig with the best of you too:) LOL
Those are my stomping grounds:)
