We will, we will----Rock You!

Hi Everyone!!! Happy Monday!  Today starts Rocks & Minerals week and for those of you who are die hard Breaking Bad fans I know, I know--they aren't rocks they are just minerals!  I never watched it but when I told my son what the theme was this week he told all about the rocks vs minerals thing and actually he's right.  DO NOT TELL HIM I SAID THAT!

I am a sucker for those bag of rocks you can get whenever you travel.  I love digging through the bins and looking for really cool shapes and colors.  I have a dish of them sitting out at home as well as around my monitor tray at work.  There is just something looking at them I find soothing.

I dug through my stash at home to see if I could recreate anything I had and for the first one up I think I did pretty good!
I had a heck of a time trying to get confirmation on the name of this rock though!
No stamping at all as you can see--this baby is all free hand!
At first we thought it might be dalmation jasper or some sort of rutilated quartz.  But after checking out lots of pics I've settled on Dendric Agate
I think it looks pretty cool
What do you think?  Think it's pretty close?

A few of my friends and I are working on some mineral mani's all week--check em out!

  2. Fabulous! Do I see added glitter in there to give it some awesome texture?! What a cool mani, and kudos on doing it freehand <3

    1. Yes Emma, I used a little franken I made that's got some iridescent flakies and sparkle in it for the base
