Gems are important in Priestess of the Eggstone. Skystones are very rare blue gemstones that get mentioned because they really are important to the plot several times. Then there is the Eggstone, although it's not really a gem. It's an alien god or AI or something. It isn't telling.
I'm a sucker for rocks. I have a BS in Geology and buckets of rocks all over my house. I love the folklore and mythology behind gemstones. I love the feel of them in my hands. I was thrilled to go shopping for rocks for prizes.
Where's your favorite site to drool over pictures of lovely stones? They don't have to be jewelry or even sparkly, just really cool rocks. Post a link or three and share.
This piece is cut and polished in a tear drop shape about an inch long. It's a lovely shade of purplish blue.
