Of course its worth it as a gift to special person, and as something that caught your eye.  I hope the recipient enjoys the rock as much as you did the acquisition.

A few bad pics (will post better ones later) of my Colorado River blurple agate the hematite in some of the plumes gives it an Awesome shine this is going to fill one of my free boxes next week. Sadly this is my only discovery this winter I just didn't feel like hunting, I only spent like 24 full hours prospecting/hounding in 5 mo. I would have liked something a little more "WOW" but just didn't have the time or inclination.

So I suppose I ought introduce myself, and explain my name(rockhounds should know the name!). I'm Ty I've always loved to dig and look for rocks, lol when I was younger than I can remember I used to dig until my hands bled, and now that I read that I imagine most people might think thats kinda crazy. Ive lived in either Western Az, or owyhee county ID the majority of my life but have lived in: camas wa, lipan tx, Prescott (press-scott!) Valley Parker and lake Havasu Az, ouahu and the big island hi, and I still visit most of these places so if you live nearby let me know so next time I go we could go hounding. I tend to ramble on sometimes when writing/posting, you will have to excuse me my thoughts run much faster than I can physically type, I will try and limit the content of my posts. I love all things rock and mineral related . Well all but one that is rather absurd in my mind, that is the so called (metaphysical) properties of rocks & minerals, first the name would suggest that these stones(which are physical objects) hold properties that transcend the physical, if you want to try and understand metaphysics get a copy of Immanuel Kants critique of pure reason. Next, it scares me that soon this miracle healing will soon take someone's life; I personally have been told to hold daily stibnite and sulfur Crystals in my pocket, it's disturbing that I read that cinnabar, metatorbernite, and Galena can heal me! Or in some way me being around them is beneficial to my soul, this profiteering of the hopes of those looking for help, this avaricious behavior, will one day lead to more scrutiny on rockhounds and more regulations if you truly want to heal people enter the medical field please! Ok I'm going to rap this up by apologizing that I said I would have some of my morrisonite for sale, lol i have no saw! Yet I'm going back up to marsing next month so eventually I will sell some, if you are looking for rough (my claim) owyhee gold picture Jasper, old stock regency rose, petrified wood, or my new find this winter I'm calling blurple agate, I'm going to have a free give away (just pay priority rate shp) next week to the 1st 3rd 5th 6th and 9th people to post, If everyones happy I'll do it every so often so the people who post for the sake of others will be rewarded next time.  :hello:

I feel like it was worth more but I don't know all the types of agate offhand but I know I've seen this type before, lol but I do know that not knowing something while knowing to have known whats unkown leaves me with known unknowns, and i don't have to tell you about the known knowns, but the unknown knowns are what we need to know so that we don't live in a world where there may be unknown unknowns such as this bad attempt at a real speeh that was awesome oratory! Anyway if you could Id it that would be really cool I'm going to give it to my grandma who's probably not going to live through the year she was a lifelong rockhound/native American artifact collector so im hoping this is a really awesome find! Thanks

Hello all:  I'm experienced in many  kinds of metal fabrication but I have never made a channel inlay cuff bracelet. I'd welcome all advice and tips regarding measurements, wire sizes, sheet sizes, setting stones, bending and fitting ...  or anything else you more experienced makers can suggest. THANK YOU!!
