Pet Rocks.

When I mentioned shopping for a pet rock, I was referring to the cabochon that I need for the big project in my jewelry-making class. I had to skip out on the lapidarist visit last Monday because of school work, but fortunately there was a big Gem Rock show at a community center here in Central Arkansas on Saturday. 

 So many pretty rocks! I had a hard time choosing just one. It also didn't help that I wanted to be in and out so that I could return and do some homework before my outing at the symphony that night.

 I also picked up 3 grab-bags of assorted misshapen rocks. Not sure what to do with them yet. Typical.

 Meet my pet rocks; Dichroic glass, Rainbow Calsilica, and Peruvian Opal.
I finally decided on these three lovelies from Designer Cabochons. The lady wrote the names of each one on their respective baggies. That way, I can totally geek out and name the stone that I will eventually be "rockin'."
 See what I did there?

So, which one should I use for my big project piece?

Until next time, ♥.

I like the bigger stone, you could make a very nice statement piece with that

Those are pretty! Sadly, we don't have lots of choices here.
