Sorta Pretty Rocks

Yesterday I woke up and decided I wanted to look for some naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM). Before I even got out of bed I made plans to go to the East Coast Gem, Mineral & Fossil Show. A convenient coincidence given my spur of the moment itch.

The event was truly amazing, filled will thousands of beautiful specimens worthy for a museum display case. It sparked my younger self wonder and excitement as I once collected crystal and gems when I was very young. It took almost all day for me to scan everything with my Geiger counter. Part of the reason why; I couldn't walk more than 10 feet without someone stopping me, asking questions about my Geiger counter, what I've found, and if their stones are radioactive. All the dealers and collectors wanted to show off their radioactive minerals to me. It was really fun.

Below are all of the minerals and crystals I bought.

The following I will be selling on eBay shortly.
