Greetings from the cold north.

Hey everyone,
Im Derik, from Minnesota. Ive been a rock and gem enthusiast for some time. Agates are the main stone to collect, find, and craft here. Im pretty unfamiliar with turquoise and feel fortunate to have come across this forum. Have always been rather intimidated by it as I lack knowledge and understanding, other than its an often faked stone. I love the colors and am making an attempt to add some to my collection.
Glad to be here. Take care.


Welcome to the forum. You can learn a lot here and see some beautiful things. I’ll warn you that Native American Turquoise can become addictive. That’s been my personal experience. :rofl::woman_shrugging:t3:
