Think of your loved ones…

heart-crystals
This is the perfect time of year to:

Think of your loved ones and remember the things that they really like.

That is – the material things any way…

The Christmas season is a perfect time to remember those we love in all kinds of ways, and one of the most popular ways is by the buying of gifts for them.

 

Many rock hounders or rock collectors would actually be thrilled with a new “rock” or crystal to add to their collection.

You should know that there is not a numerical limit on precious rocks to a collector.

It cannot be either too big or too small either.  Each stone is very cherished, and each one is an individual prized stone to a collector.

There are various different kinds of rocks or stones.  They range from crystals to agates, to obsidian, to jasper.

Each stone is composed of different properties that make it exclusively unique in color, shape and size.

Some are kept just the way they are, while some are polished or made into decorative shapes like arrow heads.

Rock enthusiasts appreciate all kinds of rocks, they may even become some what like special friends, or at least considered a pet.

Thus the craze for “pet rocks”.

Biography
Jim Magnuson and his sister Carol Wood have been collaborating on creation of books related to gemstone hunting and finishing since 2010. They have a shared interest in the beauty of natural gemstones such as Lake Superior Agates.

Rock hounding is more than a hobby for author Jim Magnuson, it is a serious and rewarding avocation that helps him connect with nature. He has been an avid hunter and student of various gems, minerals and fossils since his childhood, when he first began to hunt for stones in his native state of Illinois. In addition to hunting rocks & minerals, Jim has developed a strong interest in the lapidary arts for creating jewelry pieces from the semi-precious gemstones that he hunts for and collects.

Jim also enjoys sharing his knowledge and interests through writing, another lifelong interest. Through his writing he hopes to inspire and enable others to be successful in finding quality gemstones and creating beautiful jewelry pieces. Jim continues to learn and adapt his rock hunting and lapidary methods and publications; to this end he greatly appreciates all feedback from readers.

Carol Wood took up professional photography as a means of satisfying a lifelong passion for creating and sharing things of beauty. She has a keen eye for seeing perspectives in things that on the surface appear to be mundane or quite simple. Given her training and natural instincts for perspective and complementary lighting that enhances visual clarity, Carol is able to produce high-definition photographic images that enhance but don’t distract from the given subjects. These skills are essential in creating both guidebooks and photographic essays.

Carol has also developed a personal interest in making jewelry pieces using gemstones she has found. She has become familiar with many of the lapidary tools and processes in the Gemstone – Lapidary publication and authored some of the book’s content.

Editorial Reviews
About the Author
Author Patti Polk is recognized as one of the top agate collectors in the world (as noted in the highly respected reference book Agates III by Johann Zenz). She has been collecting, cutting and polishing rocks for jewelry and display for more than 20 years. She has been published in Rock & Gem magazine and numerous other periodicals, and speaks at rock and mineral club programs and frequently serves as a trail guide for visitors to Arizona. Patti is a skilled lapidary artist, which includes the cutting and polishing of the stones into display specimens or cabochons for jewelry making.

 

This is a pearl of a book, and an appreciated expansion to my collection.  As of now I have several books on distinguishing diamonds and minerals and another ten or so on where to discover them, so what is unique about     this book?

As a matter of first importance I saw the photos, wonderful pictures, yet more vitally pictures which I could identify with. In my different books I get a learned portrayal, however for the most part the photos don’t look much like the stones I find or see at shows.

Patti has picked the stones to photo so well that they all resemble the stones and minerals I have, or have seen. I found them down to earth and clear.

On the off chance that I had never been on a field trip I would now comprehend what’s in store: the photo of a punctured tire in a remote range is an opportune cautioning that there are dangers in our diversion. Be that as it may, it was the 230 pages of cases of uncut materials, cleaned things and finished jewelry which truly got the attention.

The characterization and outline of the different classes of agate is amazingly done just like alternate gatherings and minerals. Valiantly Patti has included the “esteem” of every thing, recorded by pound, ounce or gram. This is an exceptionally profitable asset, despite the fact that it might leave date rapidly relying upon the estimation of the dollar and fame and accessibility of every thing.

It has caused me to reconsider what rocks and minerals I have now, and to take a look at the things which I have incompletely disposed of as my “yard” rocks. Patti Polk’s enthusiasm for our interest soars through this book and we should be appreciative that she has filled a hole in the writing accessible to rockhounds.
