Favorite Picture of the Week


My brother and his wife bought a house in Northern Nevada and when they started hiking around their property my brother spotted a few interesting rocks and brought them to me because he knows how much I like this kind of thing. Top left is Mica, top right is quartz, bottom left I'm not really sure what that blue stone is yet (if you do, let me know) and bottom right is quartz. 

And then my brother gave me this big rock with a bunch of quartz in it. It's hard to get a good picture to show you just how many quartz crystals are in this but it's a bunch. 

There are a couple of big quartz crystals and many smaller ones. I added them to my collection of interesting rocks.

  2. Oh neat! Love staring down at the ground when I'm out in that region of the country b/c there really are some cool rocks. The blue is pretty, but I have no idea, either.

  4. Is the blue rock turquoise? I'm not sure. I've only seen it polished, so I could be wrong. Very pretty.

  5. I would be so excited to find rocks like that! I'm wondering if the turquoise one had a chemical reaction happen that made it turn that color? Very neat pics!

    1. Not sure. I'll have to ask my brother and see if he remembers what he was told it was.

  6. There's an artist on booklikes who makes beautiful jeweler out of these. I am amazed at what she can do with what looks to me like a rock :) Those are gorgeous finds.

  7. I grew up out that way, and perhaps I take that kind of natural beauty for granted, but it was so common. Come to think of it, I haven't seen anything like it on the east coast. Interesting. It makes you reexamine your personal bias, eh?

  9. These are beautiful and I love that they're still natural instead of rounded and polished up. Is the blue maybe oxidised zinc?
