I have collected "pretty rocks" all my life.

 

I have found a niche area where folks who love rocks and stones whether for their beauty, for holistic uses, or to simply add to a collection for themselves or for a gift can land.

 

When I was a kid I wanted to be a paleontologist or geologist... and life got in the way. In the end I looked for "pretty rocks" in the gravel that was delivered to our driveway when I was little. That curiosity never went away. I met my (future) husband, and we stayed at a friends place in the country, one time soon after we met, went for a walk on a rocky dirt road, and I bent down and picked up a "pretty rock."

 

That was it. I taught him how to spot an agate, and we have been collecting, learning about and selling rocks and stones ever since.
