Stone size, stone quality, the cut pattern...
I'm not the guy to answer that question.
That stone is pretty big, but it not a valuable material.
I picked it up as a kid a long time ago for I think $20, maybe $25
I could put it in some magic hippy shop and some retard would eventually pay $500 If he was told it would do bakh blah hippy magic bullshit
It is very different to the previous I'll give you that.
Im not posting my shit outside of what's been seen, but maybe I should start
I didn't make these threads to see my own shit though, I've seen that already
no, its sedimentary rock with chunks of agate in it. and uninteresting ones at that. You really think crystal balls exist in nature just growing in the ocean?
They exist, but in deep pockets in the earth, and look nothing like that.
What are you talking about faggot?
The only one if those OP posted was the arrowhead, which I never intended to do, and stated it wasn't old. >cheap Chinese flourite
I picked that up over 20 years ago, no Chinese monster existed here back then >polished agate
This one I have to assume you mean the blade.
I hate boongs more than than the average Australian, which means I hate them to the core.
But that agate blade is a work of art
Stop being grumpy that your Mexican nanny didn't feed you tendies in bed.
Juust accept you live in a shit country and deal with it.
Don't take your frustration out on random internet people
It's time to think about yourself anon.
I could post a shoe and it would be better than that...
And that includes your follow.up pic of extendo thomas that doesn't reeally add anything to the commentary, it's just the same shit but taller
Abalone diving is the most restrictive fishery in the USA. There is no commercial take of wild abalone. Individual recreational divers are allowed to take 26 per year and no more than 3 per day.
You can only take abalone north of San Francisco. There are many other areas that are closed so you have to be very careful where you dive.
Also you can't use any scuba gear, you have to breath hold. After you exit the extremely cold water, you have to fill out paperwork writhing 100 meters of the shoreline. Cut out individual tags and zip tie them to the shell.
It's a hell of a process but it is all part of the experience, and of course I eat them.
Similar to here then I assume.
It's gotta be strict cos those rickhugging faggots can't defend themselves or even run away.
If every cu t could take as many as they wanted there's be none left real qhick
I would not say they are rare. If you can dive 20+ feet and hold your breath while actively swimming they are literally everywhere in Sonoma and Mendocino.
If you can dive just 8 ft you can probably find legal sizes.
The species was harvested to near extinction in most of CA. Now the regulations are very strict and that's how it should be.
Anybody that wants to do this needs to to a lot of research to make sure they do everything legally. Simple infractions like using the wrong tool will rack up $1,000's in fines. Jail time is possible and happens regularly.
Very true. Here's some more German ww2 stuff. Got them mostly from veteran bring backs and flea markets whenever I find a low enough price. Not a nazi or anything, just like ww2 stuff. I'd like to get a helmet, but they're usually way overpriced.
Well the reason the species is so healthy north of SF is because it was never open to commercial harvest. Only recreational. They used to be plentiful in southern ca where I live now. My parents friends remember seeing them regularly.
I dive in Southern California regularly to spearfish and take lobster. I have been looking for years and have not seen a single one. I have a friend who claims he saw one once.
It's pretty sad.
I've made lots of hearts like this and have been working on my wire wrapping
So my dream project is to creat a series of abalone inlays in the stock of my speargun. I want to carve a White Seabass. Additionally I want to make a series of circles that I can inlay at specific inches on the stock so I can measure my fish and make sure they are legal size
Same with the firearms as well. In the past 20 years the prices really went up on the old ww2 stuff. Here's a kriegsmarine flag I got. Rough shape with some stains and tears but still an interesting piece. Id take a picture of the whole thing, but its massive.
An 8x4 was up in an auction i was at.
It was a legit battleflat, and it was pristine. I don't thi k it ever got deployed.
I wanted it so bad, but the price went way over what it was worth to me al .mist instantly.
Found an old clock in a barn one time keep it next to my bed for a few years only to find out it was radioactive when I bought a Geiger counter (ps. Normal radiation in my area is only about 0.08-0.2 micro seiverts)
May want to check out some local markets and shops. They're not too rare, but make sure you research them (black light test and strand burn test if possible) and the markings and stitching and post pics on forums for others to look at before buying. I got this one in a trade at a shop, though it looks to have been used pretty roughly and not cared for well post war.
I used to collect rocks and fossils and such. At one time I had a gem quality raw Ellensburg blue agate worth around $1200-1500. I forgot the box it was in when I moved from my parents house. The box disappeared before I remembered it many years later. I just hope someone figures out what it is and makes some money.
This. Radium paint. Loads of the women that worked in the factories painting the clock faces died from mouth and throat cancers caused by years of licking a paintbrush with radioactive paint on it. Although it was considered so harmless that they would do things like painting their teeth so they glowed in the dark.
Ah ok, thanks. Now I am actually impressed. That's a cool thing anon. How did you get it?
As a kid, I went through a Japanophilic (imperial/non-Weaboo) phase. My dad worked in physical therapy. My dad had a patient who was given the cloth from the Yokozuna. He mentioned my interests, and the guy gave it to him for me. It's really cool.
Maybe the guy, after talking to your dad, just felt that you would value it and appreciate it. There's no better home for something which was almost certainly treated respectfully - with some kind of "honour". I don't think you should feel bad anon, I think you should feel honoured. And the fact that you posted it shows that you do still consider it important, so he was right.
That record is from 1964
Came out on “Hatenanny” record label by the late-great Commander George Lincoln Rockwell.
I own the second largest collection of racist music from the 60s on record
Lol, I'm dumb sometimes. Geodes I've seen before are usually things like amethyst - really pointed, sharp crystals. I love the softer, "mixed up" look of yours. Never seen one like it before.
