Another lady I know from work, when she found out I make jewelry, came to me about the same time the I got the tumbled quartz to work with. She'd gotten a free green necklace along with a purchase from somewhere, which was broken, and they were sending her a second. Problem was, she doesn't like green. So she proposed a trade--both necklaces, to be worn or used for spare parts, in exchange for something blue. I showed her what little blue I had (most has been used up on various projects), and she liked the blue impression jasper chips--also called sea sediment jasper or variscite. I had pendants on the way that were the same color, so I wound up combining them with the chips, a few baby bellflowers, a few bicones, and some silver off the broken necklace.
It's really hard to get good pictures when it's dark out, and hard to show the extreme variety of the stones.
