He let the kids and I hunt through the pile of rocks and semiprecious stones, and crystals that are in his backyard (he has them from when his grandmother passed away more than a decade ago, they had belonged to his grandfather who owned a jewelry store). We got a ton of different agates, some obsidian and onyx, Apache's Tears and smokey quartz, quartz, and I think some amethyst, some river rocks that will polish up nicely and tons more...I was trying to find some jade or Tiger's Eye, which I know are in there as well (because I found a couple of really big peices when I was younger, but couldn't find any...now I just need a rock tumbler to polish them so that they can be turned into useful jewelry accents and pendants!
