Peachfront's Note: I'm slowly working on a project to document my mineral collection. Most of these items
are not for sale. Really, none of them are for sale. However, if you really want to offer a ridiculous price to purchase one of the items, you are free to contact me. I probably won't agree, at a reasonable price, but if you must have something, I probably
will agree for a ridiculous price. From time to time, I will offer well-priced
items or swaps/freebies either on eBay, the Rock Tumbling Hobby site, or (rarely)
Craigslist. My seller name would be...wait for it...Peachfront!
To start with Page One of my Mineral Collection, the 80 pound Quartz Crystal who was hugged by Timothy Leary, you can click right here. Don't be
scared, my crystals are drug-free and get high on life, tee hee.
The opalized petrified wood pieces on this page are some of the newest
items to join my personal collection. I swapped some tumbling rough, Smoky Quartz
me thinks, with a collector, tumbler, and wire-wrapper in Washington state who
collected these fine pieces herself. The four pieces of opalized wood in the picture up top are
from George, Washington. How can you not love a locality with a name like that? And the wood is
beautiful. Down below I show a close-up, unpolished, not wet, just a plain ole dry
"hunk" of this wood to show its beautiful structure. I may face it off and polish it
once we get the flat lap going, but there's no worry and no hurry, because it's
beautiful just as it is.
The fifth, non-opalized, piece is some black petrified wood that she also collected
somewhere between Wenatchee and Quincy, Washington. Again, not a piece I'm willing to
cut up for tumbles, although it's possible I might have hubby slab off a flat face
when we're ready for some sanding and polishing. It's a nice item as it is.
