It all started with sibling rivarly

My brother had the best rock collection. He carefully displayed each and every crystal and stone he had on a soft brown rabbit pelt, on a shelf above his bed. He wouldn't let me touch them.

Fast forward 20 years and I finally have my own collection, and I surround myself with beautiful rocks & minerals every day for my job. Rare Specimens are made by hand using all natural, raw, and rough rocks, minerals and crystals. No two pair are alike.
