Hello .....
I am from holland/amsterdam....
I travel a lot....and started collecting stones and crystals about 5 or 6 years ago..

As I am a artist,i started collecting them to making some jewelry...
and soon my collection grew out of proportion...

In the last 2 years i started working with rough and learning how to carve....
(i'll include a picture of one of my fire agates)
i enjoy to do fire agate and opals....( but am experimenting new things daily)

All the other rough i find during my travels ( i have some friends in Brazil who are miners and let me dig)

And buy from my friends,and friendly strangers...

Have it worked both in India and Brazil( depending on the type of work i need to have done)
