A little time in the studio with the rocks -- and 50,328

Yesterday was not a good writing day, but I have better hopes for today, even though I have several important projects to take care of before I can start writing.  However, I did get a little bit of time out in the studio with the rocks and the camera.

 

Four little chalcedony desert roses.

 

 

Close up the one on lower right. 

 

 

 

Comparison to one larger.  It weighs 592 grams.

 

 

The largest one I could find on a quick grab this morning.  It doesn't look nearly as pretty, but it's the same material.

 

 

That's 1318 gr (minus weight of paper towel) or 1.3 kilos or close to 3 pounds.

 

And now I have to get to work.
