Tailgate Rocks Cut

Tailgate Rocks Cut

I went back to the same site that yielded the tailgate rocks in my last posting. These 2 visits yielded the large amethyst geode shown in this slideshow (Rocks #518 to #524), as well as the 2 individual rocks shown below.

Other rocks from the tailgate and second visit are in the Cut/Polished Tailgate Rocks Gallery.

What I continue to find amazing is the diversity of colors and sagenitic material…..blue, amethyst, yellow, red, and green…….note the lava inclusions in rocks shown in Gallery pictures 505 and 516. I am interested in your thoughts and how the lava shard got inside the nodules. Photos 539, 540, 541 are the same stone as shown from different angles, showing how difficult it is to guess what is inside before cutting! I will post more pictures from this same location when they have been cut and polished. Stay tuned.

  2. Thanks for taking the look and glad you enjoyed it. Hope you will peruse it often as I plan to keep adding different rocks and I frequently find something new to share.
