Well the Mendocino Coast has been getting pounded by storms the last couple of weeks. We are getting excited as this will surely bring up some great new jade stones for everyone to find! We lost electric power 3 times last week but the Lapidary shop is Solar powered so we just kept on like normal. The shop has been cutting California Jades and getting ready to use our new flat lap for large polished pieces. Was going through some old pictures and found one of the day I sold an awesome Vulcan Botryoidal Jade to David Crosby!!
