A gift from the Sea

August 31, 2010

I’m happy to talk about the Sept./Oct. issue of Gold Prospectors magazine. Gift from the Sea my article about one of the world’s rarest gems, ammolite, is one of the featured articles. Shells belonging to the family of ammonites have been collected by people for eons. Today they are sought by collectors, used by scientists as a tool to date rocks and treasured as a symbol of good luck and prosperity in the Far East.
To learn more about ammolite, look for a copy of the magazine.To learn more about me, please log on to
