    Another Fire Het Clown with some Agate from Utah.
    Due to the high polish on the stones: the camera could either focus on the agate or the snake, but, not both. I picked the snake.

    Pastel ball python with some Chalcedony.
    Chalcedony is very hard, but, very brittle, and can shatter during the mining process.
    Sometimes the pieces I get for tumbling are so sharp and irregular that they do a lot of damage to the tumbling barrel.

    In order to see the detail on this dinosaur bone I had to hit it full-force with the camera flash (which washes out the colors a bit).
    Alternate views of the piece on the bottom below:

    Here is some tumbled/polished local Serpentinite I collected (with a Het Pied serpent), the green color can vary greatly from piece to piece.
    I also tossed in a few pieces of clear quartz in the photo...which I can also find in my area, but, is a rarity.

    Little video of me collecting some of this rough material (lazy mans rock-hounding).


    Serpentinite is a difficult material to tumble because it is prone to fracturing along softer yellow/orange veins (none shown in photo above: usually lost in tumble).
    If the orange mineralization is not too collected in one spot, sometimes I can keep it (as shown below).

    I have tumbled Serpentinite from different parts of the USA, I think the material in my area is the most difficult.

    Re: Snakes and Stones

    I went to Mystic CT the other day, I visit the Aquarium and the surrounding shopping village about once a year to check it out.


    Halloween is a great time to go for me to go to Mystic because I find more interesting things to look at.
    I am always curious what sort of 'snake-themed' things I can find in the various stores.





    This year: there were Two 'Haunted bookstores' set up in the town.
    I know they had been working on these for a while.
    The smaller book store had a section of old (early 1900's) 'paranormal/metaphysical' books. ($$$$$)

    The larger one was more of a tourist trap with a built-in coffee shop.

    Both of these stores were pretty interesting, although the outside of the buildings were deliberately fashioned to look 'abandoned'-
    which could be problematic because even with an 'open' sign, people walked by these without a second glance...

    Some of the decor in these bookstores was on the spooky side as well. I bet some smaller kids would be traumatized lol...



    Of course snakes had to make an appearance. I am glad they are fake ones in these jars...

    Re: Snakes and Stones

    My gf has an odd sense of humor:
    I thought she would find it funny when I told her there was apple pieds in a bowl in the kitchen for her.

    She was not amused.
