This may be totally irrelevant ,obvious ,or just plain silly, and if I'm off track shut me down now.
I've been accumulating rocks,slabs minerals and other such things.
So I'm asking the people with rock reading experience to share what to look for either in the
field hunting rocks or at the bench just before flicking the switch on the saw.
Looking at a chunk of rough jasper what to avoid and so on. Do rocks have like wood a grain a proper direction.these are the questions in my rock head.
Walking along a path or on a beach strewn with all sorts of stuff that attract people like us
. Are there other indicator signs to watch for to bring us to the jack pot
Some of what I ask I know is kinda hard to put in words
To put it simply as far as cutting cabs how to get the best and most out of a chunk of rough.
Any insight or wisdom is greatly appreciated.
In the short time since joining I've gotten so much from this forum and I thank you all.
