I'm speechless!

Thank you to EACH AND EVERYONE on this forum. I could not have done it without the incredible amount of information available from this site.

I do not have a formal education or "real life" working knowledge in the field. I stumbled upon this site a few years ago and became addicted to gems, rocks, minerals, the science behind it. The knowledge, camaraderie, morals and professionalism of the posters here keep me coming back.

My kids and I now spend all of our vacations and time off rockhounding (Michigan, New Mexico and of course the Sunstones here are our favorites). I start faceting classes in June and I will soon have to reinforce the floors to support the boxes of rocks we have here. I don't often speak, but I am visiting and learning something new every day.

Barbra and Jason, an extra thank you to both of you.

Again, thank you everyone!
