no unfortunate circumstances. thank goodness. the gentleman they belong to is in his 90's, and is now in assisted living. his son and he were there the entire time, and all agreed it was time for someone else to enjoy them! good cirumstances!

ps. still sorting! I can't find the living room, dining room or kitchen either! we've enlisted some extra helping hands, and they are slowly coming along. Nothing like emptying a jar of vitro and marble kings etc and have a gooseberry roll out. LOL! So we have to be careful and make sure something doesn't just 'roll' by.

the smaller sulfide box? or the 2 banded hand cut agates? the big crucifix sulfide is pretty unusual I think.

Wow, that was great that they thought of you two! If you are going to have your $$ box at the Seattle Show, charge admission to your room - that will help bolster the IAMC finances...!

lol. I have sold about 95% of it, during the summer. i am not really listing right now, just helping my daughter list mostly. HOWEVER, if anyone has a want list, or need a Christmas present, I do lots of things privately,, just give me a yell, maybe i can help. :-)

Rylee, I can't begin to tell you how much work that was. it was truly a labor of love. but it was fun too!
