This was in the packing material of some rough I just received. Any guesses? The crystals are reddish in sunlight, yellow material on the side is soft like ochre.

Any recommendations on where to source rough or finished material for resale purposes?

Before the invasion of adulterated Chinese made stones hit 30 years ago I knew half a dozen  who made their living cutting  now just a few and they have other stone related things , mines equipment sales etc. , To provide much of their income.

Ok, so I was into this quite a bit in my younger days.  I'm looking at investing time and money to possibly get back in.  Not just for fun, but to make a profitable business out of it.  I'm in chicago, so native raw material in rather non-existent, and I would have to do a lot of shipping.  I have no delusions of being a jewelry designer.  I'm looking to tumble, cut, polish material.  I've loved this stuff since 7 years old, but I'd like to make money at this point.

Is anyone out there doing this full time?  AKA, no other sources of income.
If so I would appreciate a conversation.

Can't give you any specifics, but there are lots of things in that area.

Here's a link to a rockhounding web page with several sites marked near Wells.

Happy Hounding!

Thank you, Vince!!

I apologize to all for being absent so long. Had about a million things going on. Besides keeping the usual home fires going...One being that my oldest son moved back to Texas and picked up where he left off from his old lifestyle, (not good at all!). Me, working on building my crafting website, my mother being ill for some time, (shes much better now). Then my Aunt suddenly passed away a couple nights ago.

I'll be flying out to Florida from 5/29 until I get back, which is unknown at this time. Maybe around the middle of June. Maybe we can plan a late summer day trip......Anyway I will try to be better at staying connected with ya"ll.

She did a great job!  Obviously lapidary talent runs in the family.   :icon_sunny:
