Datolite, sort of a scrimshaw drawing. These are contemporary, created in the 90s. There were four made, two went to an Asian country where they were touted as being done by miners while they sat around a campfire. Someone was being romantic I think?

...Mindat's ten dollar or less case. Thanks to Jessica Siminoff and Jolyon Ralph for taking the time to find these during the show.

By the way, at home it takes me one minute and twenty two seconds for each photo to load. So bear with me as I slowly add them.

Just got back from seeing a movie with our youngest daughter, and lunch with both our daughters, so it was nice to get out with the sunny and very warm weather. After quite a day of stepping out I am now ready to put some photos on this thread again.
