A person such as rockhound, lapidary, bonehead or mineral collector that licks rocks to bring out the color potential within the rough stone. Wetting a rock shows what the stone might look like once polished.

Well we finally did it. We broke down and bought a rock tumbler to carry around with us in the motorhome. Bob has been known to exaggerate occasionally…….but I don’t think he is very far off when he says we are carrying an extra couple hundred lbs. around the country - of ROCKS! We have found a new hobby that we both enjoy. Where else can you get great outdoor time in search of natures wonders? From petrified wood in Arizona to agates on the beaches of Oregon, we are finding so many treasures in every state. The first batch is in the tumbler and I can’t wait to see what they look like without us licking them :}
