    Tumbled Stones



    I started collecting these several years ago, I let my Grand-kids pour them out & play with them. :P
    But my collection on the shelves is (Off Limits).

    Re: Tumbled Stones

    Fossis.....Do you believe that different stones have any sort of power ie: healing...mood etc etc. I feel "something" when I hold quartz, it almost feels like a scource of "well being". It's probably my over active imagination I guess.
    That is a great collection of stones that you have.


    regards U.

    I will leave that question to others that have had personal experiences with Crystals, but I know several who do believe they work for different things.
    I know when I am just looking at my collection that it is a 'pleasant experience', & I would like to have a room full just to enjoy, & in a few more years that might happen if I keep collecting.

    Thanks, Fossis..........

    Sorry, I can't be of any help, I buy or trade fossils for mine.

    Nice rocks, very nice collection, I see quite a wide verity with brilliant colors......good job...

    marinedad the rock polishing has a trick, the rocks you might be trying might look nice but don,t hold up....here is a tip, take a nail and try and scratch the rock if it easily scratches it will not likely polish, but if it leaves no marks, throw a hand full into the tumbler and run 4 different grit sizes, one grit size per week, tumbling 24/7.......at the end of the month, you will have rocks like that as well.

    good luck and happy hunting.....

    I don,t know where you are at but I am in the phx area and have access to all sorts of rocks that work well for polishing.....if you want some....let me know....I find them while out looking for gold, just cover shipping and I will send you some....

    Re: Tumbled Stones

    Vibes......I would be most interested to hear what you have to say, thank you. It's strange but sometimes I do feel as if I have some sort premonition sensations. I've always put it down to a vivid imagination. Many years ago I did do TM meditation, just don't do it anymore tho.

    regards Unicorn
