I love blue lace agate, and here are some very pretty faceted rounds. The ones above are larger, and then there are some smaller ones below, along with some tourmaline and agate.
Crysoprase is something I had heard of but not really familiar with. It is a rare form of quartz, usually the color of green apple, but can also be a dark green. I didn't see a whole lot of it, but I did pick up these roundelles, which are a pretty green apple color.
Chrysocolla sounds similar, but it is a "carbonite copper" gemstone. Apparently it has copper and is often found mixed with malechite, turquoise and azurite. I did find a very pretty pendant made from chrysocolla and picked it up along with a florite one. I usually don't like to buy pendants that are already made, but I thought these were really cool.
I also picked up some cabs, which you won't be seeing in my pieces for a while, because I have to perfect my soldering skills first. I got some some turquoise cabs:
In addition to the turquoise cabs, I also got some jasper cabs. These are all red river jasper, except for the large square one which I was told is "mushroom jasper".
There's a lot more, but I'm only going to show you one last thing. When I saw these, I really wanted them because I'm thinking I can have a lot of fun with them. This is called "Suchoo Jade". I have no idea what that means, but I bought them for the Buddha heads:
Ok, now that I have shared some of my finds with you, I have to go get to work. I need to make some pieces and hopefully sell a lot of stuff before my husband sees what I put on the credit card!
