New Resource, Fun stuff

Oh, I discovered a new resource:

Additionally, The most fun part of this project:
Arguing with Lorelia, Talmont, Durinor, and Je'vossu over who gets to have Lapis Lazuli, Selenite, Sodalite, Blue Topaz, and Labradorite. It came down to Lorelia and Talmont and bitching over what was more important - Truth & Beauty versus Intuition and Inner wisdom. Or me bitching about it for them... whichever.

I think we all came to a soothing compromise, without me feeling like I was shorting any of them.

You grok rocks/minerals?

Sehr kewl..

Though I don't have much of a mineral collection these days, I have over 100 different species of trilobites.

I'm attempting to grok them. *chuckles* I don't have very much on hand experience, but I'm far better than I used to be. I have a meager collection of gems, and my next step is to identify them.

A very long time ago, my aunt gave me all the specimens from her geology class as she didn't need them anymore. I kept the two bags of tagged rocks for quite a while, but not long enough. I eventually got rid of them.
