Oh no but I know where there is a bunch of Wenden marble you will eventually get in the mail and maybe I get a lil one back!!!   LOL

Jhon I went to a show back in the early summer and saw the folks that gave me that big hunk of kyanite. Told them about it and then I gave them a big Old Crow Springs turquoise cabochon as a gift!  They loved the turquoise, it was a classic piece with the nutmeg brown Mattox swirled with black and army gren swirls and blotches of turquoise. He wants to send it off to make a wrist band type bracelet like a bracer to wear. I felt good about it, I love my sphere!!!

Yep you did good Jhon. The folks told me where on the mountain to get more. Problem being the claim is owned by the rock club and they open it once a year for a 4 day hounding trip and rock swap and camping. The next problem is that the pyrite looking rocks that are actually kyanite are a long walk thru the rock field on the side of a steep mountain. I am going some time but I have to talk the lovely Susan into hiking around there and bring me a couple back.
