Identifying Rocks & Minerals

I used to be a rockhound, but I didn't stay with it long enough to learn much. A few years ago, we bought a box of polished cabs and slices, which I just got around to listing. If any of you can help identify some of these, I'd be happy to link back to your store or website from mine. I'll also be putting up a Squidoo lens for them and I could post a link for you there, too. Bartering is another option on these if I have something you like.

To see what I have, please choose "Rocks & Minerals" from the category list in my CountryNaturals OLA House.

Here's one of my favorites. This is a closeup of a tiny fire agate:

What did you read when you were young?

I read Little Golden Books (LGBs). That's why I collected them for years. They were inexpensive, available almost anywhere, and were well written on almost every topic!
My favorites were the basics--the ABC's, Picture Dictionary, the ones about Wildlife, Birds, Cars, Baby Animals, Growing Up, and I loved certain authors and illustrators: Margaret Wise Brown and Eloise Wilkin.

Walt Disney jumped on the bandwagon with Mickey Mouse, Dumbo, Lady (and the Tramp), The Little Mermaid, Winnie the Pooh, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and more!
There was Bozo the Clown, Howdy Doody, and one of my daughter's favorites to this day is The Color Kittens by Margaret Wise Brown.

I am selling my entire collection of LGBs now on OLA. See my auctions to find your favorites now to save on shipping!
If you do not see YOUR FAVORITE, O-Mail me. I have hundreds. I am listing as fast as I can!
Thank you!
