Stopped by Tony’s rock pile a couple weeks ago, picked up some nice sphere material and a old saw to rebuild..

If your close to Tony’s place it’s worth stopping by!!!

Yeah, Tony's place should be at the top of any lapidary list of places to visit.

That last Pilbarra (I think) sphere is amazing!

Let me attest to the fact that Jay (Sandsave) has more fun digging through rock piles than just about anyone I've ever met.  And there is a lot of digging to do at Tonys place!!  These piles are just a fraction of what is on the property.

I won't bore you guys with the dozens of photos I took, but I do believe the saw that Jay took home is in this photo.

Be still my heart.  That much rock and that many saws makes my credit card flutter iike an lphone on vibrate.  Tony is good people and part of what holds this hobby/industry together.  Its nice to see folks stop on his home territory, but equally valuable that he comes to us on buying expeditions and Quartzite campouts.  Thanks to him and all that support his efforts.
