That's good!
The board going thru a dry spell
and with summer breaking people
will get out hiking and posting again
Or we'll all end up at rock bottom!
:)
I can only encourage to look for gold rocks
or any other types that worth cutting and polishing.
I don't have much money but You can throw them at me :lol:

So this summer I hounded and polish these beauts in Phoenix

I'm looking forward to another season of doing lapidary work outside,
rock hounding, plus all the rock & mineral shows that will start up
for the fall/winter season in the southwest

support your local rock hound
and best to everyone
get out and enjoy!

Nice stuff. I thought about getting into lapidary as something to do in the wintertime.

Howdy dude
I definetly encourage ya
so many different aspect to the rock hobby

one of simplest and inexpensive ways
to get started is to buy a tile saw.
A 7" Workforce usually under 90.00
can be had at pawn shops for 60.00
a person can get real good at slabbing a good size rock with one

anyway just go out a collect some intersting looking rocks
and cut them in 1/2
its the inside that make the rock unbelieveable
its amazing how well the saw blade polishes the face cut
a little of that and ya can get hooked pretty quick

I hound in Phoenix in the landscaping river rocks
found marbles, calcites, chalcendony, schist ect..
the ones above were from landscaping river rock


and of course there always tumbling...

Hey, that sounds like stuff I can actually work with. I don't have much room around here, but that would not take much.

yep the Workforce 7” saw doesn’t take much room
and it’s a must have machine for lapidary work.
I leave mine outside, covered with a plastic tub.
The weather not going to damage it any
and its ready to cut, anytime.

Lapidary machines don’t take much room.
But all the rocks a person collects sure can!!
:lol:
