Hello all, It’s been a good two years since I’ve posted on here, but people keep coming to this site, which is great. I’ve directed a few hounders to good spots for Dallasite and Flowerstone while I’ve been gone.

Rock’n Hearts from Mr. Mohs
Dallasite and Flowerstone live on. I sent a couple of rocks to Mr. Mohs in the USA. He makes specialty “rock’n hearts” made of two slices combined into a heart shape. I asked for a Dallasite heart, a Flowerstone heart and a mix of the two.
Dallasite and Flowerstone cuts
Though I’m off the island, my Dallasite is all over the world. A friend in Georgia cut some Dallasite and Flowerstone I sent him. Big difference in look to some of these pieces. There’s such an incredible range with this rock. Behold the pictures!
Dallasite groove-wrapped cabochons for Christmas
Wanting all the worked Dallasite I can get, I commissioned Kidd Rocks Lapidary in Michigan to make me some of their fantastic silver groove-wrapped cabochons out of material I collected.
Dallasite cabochons from BC Rockhound material
Tommy Lay is that fantastic lapidarist who first made cabochons from our Dallasite. Now he’s made some more. I sent him some high grade Dallasite, or so we deem it. He wrote a nice review of the material on this rock forum and posted a couple of his cabochons so far.
Dallasite and Flowerstone slabs
It’s been rainy here on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada. That and working has impacted my ability to take good pictures. So here are some not so great pictures of slabs I got from Tommy Lay.
Dallasite, inside and out
Here’s what Dallasite, our lovely British Columbian jasper of green, white and black, looks like rough on the outside and then cut up to reveal the inside. That’s all for today. These pictures and rock are thanks to Tommy Lay, who was generous enough to slab and cab some Dallasite for me.
