I just got back from a week and a half visit with my parents in southern Utah. While I was out there I got to do two of my favorite things; visit the best rock shop EVER and go rockhounding.
What’s nice about my parents house is that you can explore the Mojave Desert by either walking down the road or just off-roading a couple miles out.
I also got to visit my favorite rock shop located in Springdale, right outside of Zion National Park. This place is always full of cabochons, fossils, jewelry and more! It’s a family run operation and the husband cuts most of the cabochons himself.
On this trip, I picked up several pieces local to Utah including septarian nodule, picasso stone (picture marble) and some trilobite fossils. I also purchased some ammonites (for mold-making), turquoise and snowflake obsidian (for bead embroidery…Ooooo) and an orthoceras pendant.
The desert is full of treasures and I’m excited I was able to find and bring some home with me.
