Today I went to the Rock, Gem and Bead show at Newcastle Racecourse in Gosforth Park. I have been to this show before a couple of years back and was really impressed with the quality of goods for sale. I know it sounds silly but I can tell the difference in the quality of rocks and gems. There was so much I wanted but I only took £6 with me (I didn't even spend all of that either).
Above (Bottom of photo) - Selenite Wand 50p
Below - Fuchsite
(One piece is very glittery and the other is more rounded and shiny on the surface) 50p Each.
The next two rocks are ones my mum has bought me for Christmas....this is seriously gonna be the longest 6 months of my life.....I want them NOW!
I have been wanting a piece of Bismuth for ages. I love the oxidised colours, formations and shapes created, everything about it is just wonderful. The formation looks like stairs with Greek patterns on them don't ya think?
This is probably my most favourite stone in the whole world....the darker the better as the colours make it look like a pool of water. The colours are to die for.
So now all I need is a vintage Letter press tray to display them in, so you have one you want to sell please get in touch with me.
