So while I am waiting for my new 10 inch saw, I decided to cut a few smaller pieces with my 6 inch trim saws. Here's what I got.
I'm pretty sure the blue in the second picture is Pietersite and I love the patterning in the 3rd. Visits are starting to pick up in spite of the poor weather and we are seeing a lot more strange looking licence plates in town.

If you have visited Nova Scotia, you know that it is one of the most scenic parts of the world. And our little corner, Digby Neck, is one of its main attractions. What you might not know is that the rock that often helps create that scenery can also be breathtakingly beautiful on its own. Bay of Fundy agate is world famous and treasured by collectors.At The Artist's Mark, I have a fully equipped "Rock Lab" where I can cut, grind, polish and tumble rock. And if your schedule permits, I'm glad to give you a fast tour.

So if your travels take you to this part of Nova Scotia, look at the rocks! And don't forget to come by and pick up your own "Piece of The Neck"!
