Too Quiet Around here! Some recent cabbing fun.
« on: July 09, 2021, 10:48:12 AM »

It is quite a mix of stones, most are known to most everyone.  The one odd ball is the Mojave seam plume.  This Seam I found about 4 months back and am waiting for it to cool down out here to dig some more.  Sort of reminds me of some of the Moroccan seam material.   The Forest Fire is from my Forest Fire spot and not the Forest Fire that comes out of Idaho, totally different material.

Saw these the other day, and didn't comment. I think speechless is the word... .

The material is all great, but the composition of the cabs is what really sets them off. Very complimentary shapes for the colors and internal features on all of them.

Thank you,  since I don't sell this is my only feedback on the forum.  I cut them, stick them in trays and onto shelves to lead lonely lives.  If only I see them and there isn't feedback It takes away some of the joy of creating something beautiful.  Always good and important to hear feedback as I try new shapes and patterns.

Steve,
Why not share your beautiful pieces? Is there a reason you do not sell? The quality is better than most available out there. I am just asking. There are a lot of folks who would like to take your work one step farther.
Anyway, beautiful work you are doing and if it collects dust for the foreseeable future that is OK
Thanks for sharing...

I haven't needed the money as of yet but I guess I just don't know what fair prices would be, so subjective on a lot of materials.  Of course most importantly is how/where.  I have my website and even another that I bought years ago "greatstones.com" that I have never used but my web skills are meager at best and my rockhoundingusa website I built with antique software so it isn't very platform friendly or easily adaptable.  Seems like a mountain to climb if I went down that road.

Those cabs are superb in both design and color quality. I wonder if you put a price on this site for each stone.   There should be several members that can give you accurate prices that you could use if you did want to sell.
