My husband and I went to the East Coast Gem and Mineral Show yesterday, what a nice way to spend the afternoon.
Here's just a little bit of what we saw...
...this is actually gold. How magnificent, as was the price tag! I can't remember the exact amount on this piece, but we saw prices up to $75,000.00!
If I were a beader, I'd have been in beader heaven! The two photos above are just a minute section of the beads and cabochons offered for sale.
This is pyrite, which grows in cube shapes, cool huh? My husband bought a very small piece for home, just to have.
My favorite pieces of all are the minerals. To think that they are naturally occurring in nature is mind-blowing to me! A gift from God and Nature.
I can see how a person can get caught up in collecting pieces. Once you own one, it's close to impossible to stop there!
