This is my brand-spanking new china cabinet. Or maybe it's just my same old china cabinet with different stuff in it. I kept all of my herbs, oils, waxes, and other supplies for making homemade body care products and perfumes for years...so long, in fact, that it was all completely out of date, and most of it was *rancid*. Eeeeew.
Meanwhile, I have this massive rock collection that's been scattered all over the house and boxed up awaiting some magical day when I had a good place to display the entire collection all together. Tick...tick....tick...
|goodbye, rotten herbs|
|the central, open shelves. The punch jar|
and cups are a set my mom bought in Germany
before I was born. :)
|still using this top shelf for overflow from the|
spice cabinet in the kitchen
A few highlights:
|a polished Smoky Quartz point|
|Emerald Quartz sphere|
Somewhere, if I can find it, I also have a whole box of quartz pieces, some nice sulfides, a box of fossils... I wonder where they've all gone?
|purple Fluorite octohedron with pyrite inclusions|
|Enhydro agate, sealed - has pocket of water millions of|
years old, trapped inside!
Note: IDK WTF blogger is doing with the spacing and format here. @_@
|a plate of tiny Amethyst crytals|
|Rogerley Fluorite, which fluoresces a light blue|
in natural daylight
And don't even get me STARTED on my collection of dead sea critters - shells and skeletons and corals and things. If I ever figure out what to do with those, it'll be another post. :)
