I grew up in the country, with a quarter long gravel driveway that I would walk up and down everyday to get to the school bus. Life could get pretty boring when you have no neighbors to play with..As far back as I can remember, I would sit in the driveway and look for 'cool' rocks. Every now and then I would find a "gold nugget"!!! That was always pretty exciting, as I thought that it was really gold! My sister and brother and I would fight over who found these treasures first! It turned out to just be pyrite, but that started my love for rocks and from then on I was hooked.
My parents took me to rock shops around town, where I saw my first Geo, now those were the kind of stones that I really liked! This is about the time that I got into all the different types of crystals. I remember how magical that I thought they felt and that they could somehow give me some grand power! I would love to take a trip out to…
