Addicted to the Crystal.

Super heavy in my addiction to crystals, minerals, the rock, brah.  A friend got me a tumbler to polish my rocks.  It's been running nonstop since the day I opened it up.  The noise bothered me at first, but I've learned to tune it out.  I've recently acquired a handheld microscope as well.  Yay, lithology!!!  Hahaha.
At my overnight shifts on Tuesday's and Wednesday's I've been bringing a small satchel of rocks I've collected, my microscope, and my notebook to occupy my time.  It's incredibly satisfying to reaffirm my findings, especially as a hobbyist.  I've taken some shitty pictures by lining up the my camera lens with the eyepiece; broke dick action!  So sorry for the some of the really blurry photos. 

Listed as they appear:
  • Dendritic Jasper
  • Botryoidal Chalcedony
  • Jet
  • Palagonite
  • Olivine
  • Dyed Agate (I didn't find this, but I thought it looked pretty dope in it's resemblance to Neptune)

If I've labeled anything incorrectly, please correct me!  I usually confer my findings with a couple of friends who do this for a living, but human error is always a possibility so I won't take offense at all just shoot me an email or leave a comment below.
