  1. Enoch: Underground

    Never mind, it looked fun, but wasn't quite what I was looking for, so I refunded it.
  2. Enoch: Underground

    Sweet, I did do the link correctly I'm getting better at this computer stuff day by day
  3. Enoch: Underground

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/703400/Enoch_Underground/ I think I added the link correctly. I'm very excited about this one. The bad part is I can't report on it for a few hours yet, because Jenn is at work, and I have her take my personal credit card. For those of you who don't know, I run a type of mineral boutique out of my home. I'm kind of obsessive about minerals, and have a small compulsion about buying my own stock. Which obviously means I'm not making money; I'm just shifting money from my personal account into my business one. Anyway, I'll give report on this one in a few hours once I actually get it.
  4. Ohio. From now til next Wednesday, we're going to bounce around from 19 to 60. This is either the raddest or freakiest thing I've ever see, not sure which one yet. Have you ever prematurely got an ice cube from the freezer and it has a little water pocket in it? That's what snow is doing here. I hit a patch of that just today in my back pasture, luckily I was wearing a pair of Rockies, gotta love those boots! Who knew snow could have little encapsulated pockets of water under the surface? Not this ole boy, and I've lived here most of my life.
  5. Good God, it sounds like nature has some of your areas bent over a barrel, that sucks!! We don't get terribly adverse weather. What we get, especially during this time of year, especially during the last five years or so, is wild weather fluctuations. What we get is all season packed within a week, pretty much every week. So, it literally fluctuates between like 14 degrees one day and 70 the next. Personally, I think it's kind of rad; I've never seen snow and thunderstorms happen at the same time before.
  6. My new mineral thread

    Done. Yes, a favosite is an extinct coral. Now, this particular little fella belongs in both my fossil and mineral categories, as it's chambers have filled up with agate.
  7. My new mineral thread

    Thank you I'm thinking about adding one per day. I think tomorrow, I'll add a favosite fossil.
  8. My new mineral thread

    Which sounds stupid. Even if there's such a thing as "good" and "bad" luck, even if there's anything to superstitions, all of those minerals that I talked about in the disasters were mine. After all, I either bought or mined all of them. It shouldn't matter whether I buy them for me or as a gift for someone else or my store or even if I buy one to send to the moon. Common sense dictates that it shouldn't matter. All I know is that when I take a photo of a mineral that I intend to place anywhere other than in my own collection and put that photo on my postimage board, the stuff hits the fan. It doesn't make much sense, but that's what happens, and I like my home and health of self and family just the way they are, so stupid and silly or not, I'll comply.
  9. https://postimg.org/gallery/15e2buojq/ Hello, everyone This is the new link to some of my personal mineral collection. I will update from time to time. This just in, just in time for St. Patrick's Day, is a piece of malachite. Well, it's not "just" in, it's been on my shelf for months. But it's not selling, which means I can yank it off my shelf and add it to my own collection, which means I can photo it. That might sound strange; "I can't photo minerals that aren't mine". I'm not a superstitious guy, but every time I photo minerals in my little boutique, disaster happens. One time, I procured a shipment of cathedral amethysts. These things were so bodacious that I put some pics in my personal collection. The next day, the southeast wing of my home burned down. When I went to Ripley's, I found minerals selling for dirt cheap in their gift shop. So, I got a handful of these, sent a few pics to fellow rockhounds, and my son had a shunt malfunction the next day. One time, I was able to mine a substantial amount of Vera Cruz amethysts, put them in my photo collection, and both Connor and I had the worst GTC seizures of our lives. I found a glorious ruby in fuchsite sphere at a Podunk flea market, and bought it for my son. I put a picture of it in my collection, and my father had a mild heart attack the next day. So, maybe it's sheer coincidence, but EVERY time I put a photo of a mineral that technically isn't mine in my photobucket thing, a disaster happens.
  10. Gogo, I didn't see the picture at the time I was responding. Yes, that is definitely Larimar, which is one of my all time favorite minerals.
  11. Hello, rm3000 Thank you for your comment. My delayed response isn't because I ignored it, but rather that I've been weighing how I'd respond to it. I suck at generalized metaphors and analogies; I always end up getting a little personal (perhaps because I'm a personable guy ) But this is an instance that I'm trying to be a little careful with, because I don't want to turn it into a "Candlelight Confessions with Gilberticus" support group type of thing, I'm not certain if that's appropriate for a video game forum, it's more of...well, a Candlelight support group type of thing. But in a generalized sense, I don't know if there's such thing as "bad decision" versus a "poorly informed" one. All choices are learning lessons. Sometimes, we try to do the best that we can under the conditions at the time. Sometimes, we purposely make a poor move even though we know it's a poor move to make at the time. People are complicated creatures at times
  12. Already identified it, but thank you. It's Selenite, I was just thrown a little because of the coating of oxides that had given it abnormal gray patches.
  13. Sure does. It is indeed strange, because when you often hear that, it's a con. For instance, some say that there's a rare type of Lemurian seed quartz that comes from the Dominican Republic. But Larimar is legit.
  14. Most of Larimar is a type of sky blue, often with white veins. Now, if she had a deep blue, That's the really rare stuff.
  15. Hi, gogo What you described is one of my absolute favorites, it's called Larimar. Sadly, I don't have any in my personal collection. I'll have to double check, but I don't think I have any in my store, either.
