Stone of the Week: Moss Agate

I seem to be a week late on this one.  Normally, we have 100+ degree weather this time of year, but it’s been rainy here for the past week, feeling like an early autumn.  I love it!  Also late, because my friend just had her baby earlier in the week.  Well, let’s see what we…

Stone of the Week: Emerald

Do you feel loved?  I love and appreciate every one of you that takes the time to read my blog.  This week, I’m tackling the May birthstone, which I actually have in my possession (shock!).  Emerald is actually one of the easier stones to acquire, unlike diamond and sapphire, and has so many uses.  When…
