Very nice! You did very good fitting the stone.  Love the petersite,
The chrysocolla is real pretty, did you do it for display? The rock is pretty soft for daily carry? I did a knife for a friend with Congo malachite but he was just going to put in in a display case.
 Doing knifes can get addictive, I have a box full, I don’t make much of an effort to sell any. I have gave away more than I have ever sold. My wife gives me a hard time, I tell here that I am building inventory for the day I am forced in to retirement

I make them mostly for myself, but people always seem to be wanting them so if there willing to pay, they leave :)

The chrysocolla actually under cut on me using excessive pressure or heat, but on this knife I really like the textured feel on the grip instead of the slippery high polish. So even though soft, it most likely will be my carry knife.
