Deer creek fire agate , stars in the rock
« on: February 28, 2016, 06:42:36 AM »

So, when i originally exposed this nodule from under another cab i removed from the host stone, I seen what reminded me of orions belt.

The rock shop i frequent had a shop cat that was the coolest cat ever, his name was Orion, named after the star constellation Orion.
He passed away awhile back, i gave this to the rock shop lady in his memory.

i have a habit of giving my creations away for some reason.
wish i could get some of the money i spend making things back, but those smiles i see and the confusion in peoples faces of "why are you giving me this, i dont deserve this" look is priceless.

I can totally relate to giving things away.  I have never even considered selling anything I have created.  I get so much joy out of giving away my creations that I forget there is a monetary value there.  I've just handed over cabs that I probably could've easily sold for $50.

My friend bought a new car recently and wanted a rock to keep in his car (he keeps one of my stones in the console of each of his cars).  He saw this one and decided it was the perfect fit.  I only had this stone in my possession for about 24 hours after it was completed.

I give most of my stuff away also but I seldom get a chance to give for a purpose like your Orion piece. Great stone, great gesture, hmmmm must make you a great man.

I threw a stone into the air.
It came to earth "ouch"
I now know where.
You can quote me on this, I have the scar.
