Wow! That's pretty cool! Nice collection.

You should get a bloodstone; it's my favorite and my birthstone.

I like those Happy (but I think that kyanite is better than black kyanite)

Methinks you should get some azulite. We went to a rock exhibition at the royal ontario museum, and they had a lot of really awesome rocks (100+) and I really liked the azulite.

The black kyanite looks more awesome then the picture shows (it was a bad picture)and the desert rose selenite is about 50 times more awesome in person too. I know I could get some azurite, but I don't know about azulite... anyway, the place I get most of my stones is really really really really awesome! with AMAZING stones and such Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy it is the coolest place ever and you are allowed to touch anything! (just hope you don't break it or you might be in trouble Laughing )

"unobtainium is a humorous concept for any extremely rare, costly, or physically impossible material needed to fulfill a given design for a given application." quoted from wikipedia, it is nothing Wink

Really nice collection!
The desert rose looks like a big sample, and the obsidian arrowhead is way cool.

I has some more rocks to add to my collection Very Happy

Sandstone (so freakishly amazing!!!) sadly, you can't see it all Sad
Spoiler:
Malachite Pyramid
Spoiler:
Spoiler:
Sodalite Gemstone Point
Spoiler:
Spoiler:

The sandstone is sooooo cool!!! It wasn't altered in any way, that's how it natural forms. The different shades are based on the iron in the waves that was hitting against the stone and the dark thick lines are hematite Very Happy

Just got some new crystals Very Happy

fluorite (green/purple) its shinier in real life
Spoiler:
Spoiler:

sunstone
Spoiler:

a sand nodule. That is, pretty much, a premature sandstone. I was given it for free b/c it is well, premature and falling apart. Theoretically if I coat it in clear glue, it will stay together and still be awesome.

I realized it has been a while since I've posted my new additions, so...

A large Serpentine block that I got for my Birthday. A quote from Tim about the rock "The ideal size to do some damage when thrown."
Spoiler:
Spoiler:
And here is a really amazing Agate slice that I also got for my birthday
This is the front
Spoiler:
and this is the back
Spoiler:
Here is a blue agate slice that I got from my Grandpa and apparently it was used to hold a pen or something...
Spoiler:
Here are two forms of Selenite Stars on an agate slice
Spoiler:
Here is some Wulfenite on Calcite (small sample, I believe it is a rare mineral)
Spoiler:
Spoiler:
Here is a Sapphire Corundum (yes, real Sapphire) found in Lehigh Pennsylvania
Spoiler:
Here is a Muscovite ball on top of a Muscovite (better known as Mica) slab
Spoiler:
This piece of Petrified Wood was giving to me by my Grandpa as well. He found it when he was in the military, which is really awesome!

These are really awesome! I forget what a lot of mine are, but if I happen to remember... I'll post some of mine too. I have a ton, I just forget most of their names. And my mom has a ginormous amethyst geode.
