Here are a few of James pieces,that I own now (3) One was made for me,from some Ohio Flint Ridge I sent him(#3)...The others,in the frame,were made by friends of mine.....I have another friend,doing some knapping for my collection too,can't wait to see his work....

Cool pieces.  I especially like the first one.  It looks like the Eiffel Tower to me.   :thumbsup:

Very nice! Gorgeous fine work. Love the first one, a very unique way to capture the inclusions.

I rock hunt in the Antelope/Ashwood area of the John Day river basin in Oregon. 90% of what I post is from this area, from private property where I have permission to hike and collect. The material I find is for personal use only, I do not have landowner permission to sell. Thanks for understanding!

Hi All

Very nice. I am in the middle of planing a trip to Nethers farm this spring if they are still open. From what I am understanding at this time it should be.

Hi all

Thanks for the link. My study has show that thy are still open in 2016 also there is another property down the road that is now open to rock collectors. There are a lot of vids of Nethers farm on utube.

This is hot research for me because I can drive there and My older sis the masters degree in geoligy dont even know that it is in her back yard :glasses9:

Hi there

Looks like some of the material that I have from there that I put up for trade.

http://lapidaryforum.net/group/index.php?topic=3743.0

I still have about 60 lbs of rough to cut. I should have another 100 - 150 lbs of rough before winter hits. In my eyes this some killer stuff. If I make the effort I can get more if it has value. I know it does but does it pay for me to get it.

If you are willing to send me a slab I will trade so we can compaire materials.

Bless
