    Well I am actually quite busy lately. I am currently working on our Christmas presents for our daughters and son-in-laws. The Viking six steak knife sets!

    In addition I have some top end dinosaur bone cut up and doing the initial sanding stages to make them into preforms. You can see how I started toe day and where I ended the day.

    Here is a close up of one of the dinosaur bone sets and a couple of pieces of some very rare stone I was able to get recently.

    The blue stone is from the Ray copper mine in Arizona and is Gem Silica and Gem Chrysocolla. This is the first "pocket" found in over 10 years and it is already all gone - maybe forever. It was only small pieces so mostly for jewelry use. I think I may be able to get a few Case Peanuts though. This stuff sells by the carat and it is expensive when it can be found.

    This stone makes Turquoise look bad!

    I finished the two Viking steak knife sets and they are incredible.

    The Jade on both sets ate from 3 large slabs from the same piece of Yukon mine jade from Yukon, Canada. These two are Christmas gifts for our daughters and their husbands....
