Becoming a rockhound

Last week we joined the Ottawa Lapsmith and Mineral Club. What a great resource, oh if only I had more time! Went in to join the club and came out a couple hours later with a rounded and polished Perthite stone. Here’s a photo of it in the rough, I left my polished Perthite on my desk at work. I feel satisfied picking it up multiple times a day.

Hoping to score some boulder opal, lapis lazuli or maybe even mookaite at the gem show!
