Any rock & gemstone collectors here?

(Zone 5b)

I've been collecting rocks since I was a kid. Just anything I find that strikes my fancy.
I have Petosky Stones, Agate, rose and smoky quartz and a couple Geodes I've purchased but mostly I just look for pretty stones when I have the opportunity. I have found some beautiful stones on the shores of Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Recently I went to my first rock and gemstone show. It was so much fun! I was like going ga-ga finding Quartz Geodes for 25 cents each! The most I paid for one is $6 that was polished on the cut end. Also got some rose colored Dolomite and Smokey Quartz.
