Do you like working with stones, fossils, semi-precious gems and all things from the earth? Have you ever wanted to try rockhounding yourself, but weren't sure where to start? Mama's Minerals might be just the supplier that you've been looking for.
Personally, I'm a huge fan of fossils, like these ammonites, but I've always had to wait until a gem or mineral show comes around and maybe there will be a vendor there with specimens that I like. Now I know where I can get them online! Or how about meteorites or fossilized fish? There is a bead section too, with lovely offerings, some of which you'll see above in the picture. And guess what...
***Free Stuff Alert!!!***
Mama's Minerals is giving away everything that's in the picture at the top of the post (not the ammonites). Included is a strand each of Lapiz Lazuli, Onyx, Bamboo Coral, and multicolored Turquoise beads; a carved dragon / phoenix Blue Agate focal bead; Turquoise pendants; Bamboo Coral focal beads; and sterling silver clasps. Just leave me a comment below and you'll automatically be entered. If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice! Deadline: July 27, 2010.
