In October I joined up with Michael (AussieCarver) to fossick in his neck of the woods (far more interesting wood geologically than where I live). One the sites we visited was a small rhodonite deposit associated with chert. Michael has posted a pic of some of the material. The deposit consists of rhodonite, tephroite, jasper, quartz, manganese oxide and probably a bunch of other stuff all mixed in.

This is a buck 501 I made for the landholder to thank him for the access.

Always nice to see a couple of forum members join up.

The knife and scales look really nice David !

Michael sent me a piece of this. So I will get a chance to have some fun with this beautiful material next week or so.

Nicely done!

If you don't mind me asking, what type of epoxy did you use for this project?

Thanks,
Robert
