Careful there 1v.  You can get the piles sitting on cold rocks.   :o

Thanks, I was safe it was in the 90's and jade is a thermal reservoir.

You have some nice work 1verticle. And lucky enough to be near such nice stone to be able to go out and collect it. Only thing around me seems to be shale, limestone, and some sandstone. My Grandfather taught me lapidary when I was a kid. Currently I have a small diamond lap set that can do basic cabs and a couple sets of diamond points. Haven't made anything in a few years though.

All we have around here is basalt, basalt, and more basalt...  occasionally some olivine phenocrysts thrown in for good measure.

But talk about a thermo reservoir!   ;)  And it does take on some amazing shapes.
