Peace, Joy, Harmony, and Many Blessings to all this Holiday Season and throughout the New Year.  Here in Northern California, we are very thankful as rain, precious rain continues to fall, helping to replenish the land, our rivers, streams, ponds and lakes.  We hope for the good fortune of more rain in our valleys and snow in our mountains through the Winter and into Spring!  From our family to yours, best wishes : )

Our orchards are ready to be picked and we are all praying for rain--lots of rain to replenish our Earth.  Our neighbors up in Fort Bragg are in a Stage 3 water emergency.  Everyone needs rain up here in the Jade Triangle.  I'm not calling it the Emerald Triangle anymore.  Rare jades are found around Humboldt, Trinity, and Mendocino counties, so I give up on the "Emerald" thing & I vote to call it exactly what it is: The Jade Triangle. 

I recently purchased an estate of massive California Nephrite Jade boulders.  With this addition, I'm pretty certain that we have the largest public display of California Nephrite in the state.  We also have polished some of Jade West's boulders and we are very thankful Kirk specially selected for us. 

Our other latest venture is purchasing exquisite beautiful boulders in many varieties of rock. We are buying as large of beautiful boulders as we can find and creating masterpieces of art from them......

Images from Jade Land, nestled in the heart of California's Trinity Alps.  We call the grouping of Trinity, Mendocino, and Humboldt Counties, The Jade Triangle.  There are numerous jade deposits located amid the rocky river beds and tumbling hills of these counties & also along the Pacific Coast of Mendocino and Humboldt Counties.

We have begun to think really BIG! Everything is fabricated right here in Northern California. First 2 pictures are a massive nephrite jade polished boulder. The pink bench or table is Lepidolite with lightning bolts and inclusions of smokey quartz or tourmaline. The tall stand up Onyx pieces are drilled all the way through and can be used as fountains and the beautiful multi-color benches tables are Onyx as well. All are on display at the Rock Stop. 707-895-2388
