I am a rock hound. I saw the word rock and had to join in. I attend several gem & mineral shows each year. I LOVE what the earth provides for us in the way of BLING!!! That is a smokey quartz geode she has there that is well developed. I have a couple that are "newbies" but they throw a lot of light when you look closely. My ultimate goal is to find a red jasper sphere. I have a really NICE florite sphere.
Orps is lucky to have found one in a naturally broken state. It's sad that so many of these things have been hacked apart for profit.
