Wyoming Stones

Post  curiouscomputer on Sun Nov 29, 2009 10:08 pm

Hello,
I am usually a lurker on this forum, but finally have something to post. Smile I just took a picture of some stones, and now would like to share them with you all.



I just got these stones from a friend, who collected them from Wyoming. They are desert/wind-eroded rocks. We think the pock-marked surface on many of these stones looks similar to meteor fragments. These stones I have just washed/brushed clean, and let dry. Sorry the background is a little distracting.

I will try to take more pictures of individual stones, with a black background, and post them later. Hope you enjoy.

-Chris

There are several that appear to have much promise. I'd love to see them in profile. I think that you might have a few that would deserve good daiza carving.

Hi Chris... The stone you noted as "a toad" was striking at the viewing angle you shared with that tag. The image moves the viewer to imagine a toad while viewing the stone.

Several had substantive cracks or a broken side conflicting with the texture of other sides of the stone.

Among these stones, is there another that engages your imagination as striking & without substantive material flaw?
