Pretty Rock News - March 21 2011

Happy Spring!

Faceting Competition! All the stones are in and we are busy meeting with the judges.  We couldn't get them all together at once this time.  I guess we will just have to suffer though more beer and pizza dinners this time! The winners will be announced before the end of the month.  (Someone remind me not to have a competition end during tax season...)

We recently closed the Pretty Rock forum. Forums take a tremendous amount of time to do well. With all the balls Dev and I have floating, one of them had to go, and we chose the forum. It was fun chatting with folks, but we just didn’t have the time on a daily basis to maintain the forum. There is a lot of behind the scenes work that goes into a forum! If you have a favorite forum, don’t forget to send the leaders a thank you note for all the effort the put in to give you a nice place to chat!

On a happier note, I am going to try and be more consistent in my rock blogging to bring you news about Pretty Rock and rocks in general. We welcome comments on our posts, so we can always chat that way. We do moderate comments to keep out the spammers, so it might be a day or two before your comment shows up. Sorry, but that is the only way to keep those folks from spouting their nastiness.

Mexican Fire Opal  Dev picked up some gorgeous Mexican Fire Opal last weekend.  We will be getting some up on the site this week...stay tuned!
