John also brought the slabs he had cut for me. Regular readers of the blog know that I now have a 10 inch saw to go with my 6 inch trim saw but John has a much larger saw on his farm and as they say in lapidary- size matters!
Here is just some of the haul:
This is a beautiful slab of porcelain/crazy lace agate with quartz druzys that John found in the New Minas area.
This was a gift from John- a piece of Feather Agate- an agate formed when silicate replaces a fossil of foraminifera, a small sea creature.
Another great slab lit from the front
Same slab lit from the back- Awesome!
We are going to be making some unique stands for these pieces over the winter and they will be in the shop by next spring at the latest.
John and Nancy also left two beautiful stone and silver pendants he created for us to sell and they are both unique and beautiful. I'd show pictures but I think I'll do a whole post on them tomorrow so check back then!
Look forward to seeing you soon. Cheers!
