Hey there friend! Do you like gemstones and crystals? So as a child, I collected “rocks”. It started at a very young age and as most children toddle around and see sparkly bits in the ground, they are curious and pick them up.
I started getting even more curious and my dad would take me on walks when we went on trips and we would look at the rocks and classify them. I always was fascinated, I mean absolutely floored and how many different one I could find. I started labeling them, and had a collector’s box. I got a tumbler one year for Christmas and began that process…but ever the impatient child, it took forever to make the rocks shiny and smooth. I still remember my first necklace that I ever made.
Anyway, I also remember one thing I was drawn too was quartz crystals. I loved them and when I would find rose quartz, I was always over the moon. The other “rock” that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it was called mica. I was fascinated by the layers and layers of sheets that appeared to form. I linked that to a kid friendly site if you want to check it out. I picked up the sheets and would pretend that was how they made sunglasses as a young kid. I was always asking why, what can I use this for, and what can I pretend happened here or what imaginary story goes with this.
I never really thought about how much I enjoyed the process of finding them until my youngest started looking at them just like me. On a trip to the mountains, we found the biggest piece of rose quartz I had ever seen…naturally I had to dig it out and bring it home. It sits in my garden in front of my house.
So just for fun, I took this quiz and I really liked it so I decided to share it with you too. I really enjoyed the questions on these and a few of them I was drawn to more than one answer, but I went with my first response. Enjoy and let me know if you liked your answer.
