Seftonite…Type of Bloodstone

I subscribe monthly to a rock box from Awakening In A Box. Love the stuff!

My collection is growing.

I like the feel of this one. Smooooth.  🙂

Each stone comes with a card with a description like above. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have a clue.

Bloodstone has the appearance of red specks which remind people of blood and was carried by warriors. They thought it would stop blood flowing from wounds. Superstition, but some of us like to believe in things like that.  🙂

I bought a book to read more about the rocks, gems, and crystals. The name is Crystals by Jennie Harding. Full of information.

Bloodstone is a member of the quartz family and it has a hardness of 7 which is suitable for carving. Mine is polished. The green isn’t as noticeable as the pictures in her book.  Mine is pretty dark.

Buffalo Ranch Bombs, catchy name. Ingredients are Grand biscuits, shredded chicken, Buffalo Wild Wings seasoning, ranch seasoning, melted butter, cheddar cheese, and parsley. Two of the three kids loved them. The one wouldn’t even try them. I think next time I will make the chicken mix and put it in with noodles and do a noodle bake.  🙂

Have a splendid day!  🙂

 

 

 

 

 

Amazonite Rock

I love rock collecting. This year I began collecting again. 🙂

I subscribe to a monthly box subscription called Awakening in a Box. I wasn’t sure how to display it at first then I saw these cute boxes that I love buying for no certain reason other than they are cute. Now they have a purpose. 🙂

I am a sucker for all things container or office supplies. It is a good thing I have to drive to get most of these or my money would be gone. LOL

I love that she puts a card in that has information about it. They also come in a small bag with the name on it. I get three rocks a month along with some other fun stuff. The total cost with shipping is $19.00.

Do you subscribe to any box subscriptions? 🙂
