Agate, Carnelian, Jasper, Fossils, Crystals in many
specimens. Chalcedony at it's finest!
Rocks for your collection:
Welcome to the GREEN ART ROCKS fabulous rock shop.
Exceptional, because many of the specimens are the favorite pieces
of a number of Rock Hound collectors.
Rock Hound Tip of the
Month: To polish rocks, without enough money to purchase a
grinder, try this simple idea. Get a small piece of plate
glass. Scrap works great, because 10" x 10" is big
enough. Get a a plastic tray to hold the plate glass,
grit, and water or oil. From Ebersole's, or
another Lapidary supplier, purchase grit, 220, 400, 600.
While you watch TV, or chat, you can work the stone quite
effectively, by making small circles on the surface.
Finish about a stone per evening. You will use mineral oil
with agates, and water with all other stones. Two sets,
one for water, one for oil, is a clean up time saver.
Another idea is to purchase at "Harbor Freight" a
four side block knife sharpener. About $10.00. Each
side has graduated grit. Be sure to keep your specimen wet.
Embrace this Opportunity to treat your Optical
Microcondria by enlarging
specimens to visually appreciate the minute details of
nature. Green Art
One of my fellow Wichita Gem and Mineral Society
members Larry Skelton USGS, tells a story of while in the Army,
as a young adult, he would just use sand to shape and polish
agates. Larry shares the knowledge of experience, "takes a
long time." Works Great!
