Title: Psilomelane plume, Mexico

This was a surprise stone for 2015. I picked up a few pieces in Tucson and it ended up being one of my favorite purchases that year.

I absolutely LOVE psilomelane even though my fingernails are black for a week. I have never seen any with red around it.  Is the red as messy as the black?

Haven't worked any of the material. This year, I will be purchasing wheels.
