I had the pleasure of attending a GeoFair at our local convention center a few months ago. I dig rocks. Specimens like these were on exhibit (and for sale at booths). Onyx can yield amazing specimens too. I agree, rocks like these are a lot more interesting than gemstones.

So these rocks weren't painted or anything? Just naturally like that?

a friend's science prof used to say, "If you want to see god, take a walk with a geologist."

Just a few examples for the many reasons geology starts with gee. These are beautiful pieces of a beautiful planet. They make me smile.

I have a jasper pendant somewhere that I got in California on my first honeymoon. They actually called it Picture Jasper.
