Friday Finds: Rockhounds' Delight

By Kathy Shaskan

If you were the type of kid who loved finding interesting rocks, fossils, and other mineralogical goodies, head over to
Tomorrow's Heirlooms in Princeton and feast your eyes. It's part jewelry store, part rock museum; and it's presided over by a passionate collector who scored his first major fossil find at age 14 - a certified dionosaur hipbone! Samples of his jewelry creations are above, clockwise from left: fossilized coral pendant, Owyhee picture-jasper earrings, and two examples of plum jasper pendants.
