My opinion here, as a life long rockhounding addict of 53 years...re: "collecting is collecting" and "real rockhounding".... Collecting is NOT " just collecting"!! DIscovering for yourself is a huge rush of excitement and pride...how could anyone ever feel fulfilled just thru buying their specimens?? Hounding is my peace and serenity, There are different aspects of it to me, the biggest of which, "real rockhounding"! It's all great purchasing awesome treasures, admiring them, and showing them off but there is NOTHING that even compares to getting out, searching, digging, and finding special treasures of your own!! NOTHING! Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder and your eyes will find what appeals to you, even if it doesn't to someone else! "Tons" of the rocks I have found are not even crystals, or gold, or ruby, or even diamond but are amazing to me simply by shapes, or colors, or its uniqueness...all the others, of course, are just the icing on the cake and Its Euphoria when you "SCORE"!! I love exploring different areas and discovering beautiful gemstones and other treasures, buried away, just waiting for me to find them..lol...its like fate! [smile]
