We went to the annual Rock and Fossil Show in downtown event area. I saw a chunk of jade for 24 bucks, but it turns out that was the stock number. The actual price was probably more like $1,000. I kept on telling The Mister, "Wow! That would have been a good price!"
In the end I ended up with this little guy. I'm not sure what rock he is carved of, but I do know he is sitting on a slice of Stone Canyon Mountain jasper.
