    Wow, some beauts. I love the green/red with smaller bands of color mib just above the Yellow Smitty marble and the lower left one. The lower left red one, does that have pinkish, maybe lavender, or is it my monitor.

    the green and red is a Peltier--i like those colors, too.
    the red and lavender is an Akro corkscrew...the lavender is nice--almost pink, but definitely on purple side.

    i had fun finding some nicer common types for cheap and was surprised by the assortment i came home with...i didn't buy more than 6 mibs from any one booth.

    Wonderful haul for a weekend Paula. Is the agate at the top handcut? I like the aventurine swirl and Smitty.

    thanks Sami...yes the agate is handcut--has 2 natural fractures and a couple of gouges that look original to the stone cut--but it was only a buck!

    the aventurine green swirl was filthy when i first saw it, but turned out to be mint--another great dollar buy. Smitty was a fun find, and priced right too.
