    After seeing the latest Gem and Mineral show I find my passion for interesting crystals and minerals is white hot. Here is a chance for you to do some rock collecting at interesting sites in your area, and trade for a nice assortment of CP! My main interest is in precious and semiprecious minerals especially with well formed crystals and I will give as good as I get. They don't have to be cutting quality, huge specimens, or museum grade. So, if you have anything you want to swap, PM me - I got rocks in the head folks!

    Tamlin,
    I'm not sure if it was you who had posted about fossils awhile ago. I could trade you some fossils for CP's.

    how 'bout a piece o' crytalized haematite I just got from australia, or some opals...I too have a fluctuating passion for stones! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] I usually buy my stones overseas since not many shops in singapore sell them, and the ones that do sell are at cuthroat prices. Same for the fossils...

    In where did you see the 'rock' show Tamlin?

    Jason

    Ps. Is crytalized haematite rare? My brother's got a piece of magnetised haematite, or natural lodestone magnets, polished and moulded.

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Jason,

    LOL, international shipping and restrictions are a bit steep for this sort of trade, but thanks for the offer. The show was in another larger city near to me home. It's an annual affair, and it is a huge show. Some of the prices on specimens are in the multi-thousands of dollars. It is so neat to be able to see such stones. The best exhibit was of aquamarine crystals from Pakistan, but that was another show. There were pale blue transparent crystals the size of Coke cans and the matrix was wafer layered calcite and other goodies. It was a boulder!

    Tamlin,
    Have you been to the Mianis (sp?) River Gorge in CT? They have a large mica deposit there....may have even been a mine at one point...I remember picking up cornflake sized pieces of it and BIGGER there when I was a kid.
