It’s been one of those days when I do feel like I’ve got rocks in my head. :) I thought I’d show a sampling of some of the rocks that I’ve gathered in Scots Bay (bloomingwriter‘s hometown), tumbled, and polished. Don’t you think they’d look pretty in a flower container?
I’m waiting for a new belt for my tumbler right now, but it will soon be time to make another trek to Scots Bay to find more tidal treasures. I have two drums of white quartz almost polished.
The area is rich in agates and it’s not unusual to find pieces of amethyst on the beach, offered up by the relentless winter wind on The Bay of Fundy. I’ve only ever found the piece above, approx. 1.25″ long, along with a few much smaller stones.
I especially like banded rocks — you can never imagine the color and designs that will emerge from the time they leave the beach until they finish the long polishing process.
Another one of Nature’s wonders!
