Tumbled stones are a great way to have a rock collection. It’s one of my rock collection sub-categories for sure. Let’s see if I can hashtag them all…

A sweet dogtooth calcite vug from Kalama, Washington. Kelley Harmon (@kelleydigsrocks) and I spent about a half hour carefully extracting this from a huge piece of basalt. We share this rock. After a few years it is back in my collection. For now.

A glass float Sally Found on Ona Beach while we were researching the book. There were no gravel deposits at the beach that day, but we found this little treasure.

Sally and I went to the Wilson River (Site 7 in Rockhounding Oregon) and found a bunch of nice agates, jaspers, and zeolites. This particular agate took the cake. It has pinks yellows and reds inside it. It even turns a light purple as you turn it. Can’t wait to get this on a wheel and bring out that beauty.
