Suppose someone needs to start, have faith their should be another dawn after Amanda departs.

I will stay with old faithful Agate Creek. This time from the Crystal Hill diggings
A pic I may have shown before from the top of Crystal Hill and two of the monuments there.

The stone as dug there looks most unpromising, it takes some cleaning and fortitude to cut but the results can be amazing, a huge variety of stone.

My cab from last month was galaxy agate, this stone has some worm holes maybe suitable to connect the galaxy's (any Dr Who fans here?)

This small slab has some clear and tube(worm) agate

On cutting the stone the back had some imperfections so the stone needed to be reversed. The damaged section could be ground off.

Finished product

Due to the subdued colours taking pics was not to easy.
Thanks for looking folks.
