Did You Know

 Did you know, legend has it that carnelian was used to guard the dead on their journey to their next life?

*Carnelian is a red, pink or orange, translucent stone.


AND...In honor of RAK week, if you live in the US or the UK (I think...) help yourself to a free download of FLOWER GARDENS AND MORE.

    1. Thanks, EC. I feel badly that the countdowns and freebies aren't offered to a wider market. I. E. Australia.
      And you educate us on on Aussie birds, gardens, animals and architecture. So thank you.

  4. Lol, I thought you misspelt chameleon or it was a different US spelling. I wouldn't mind a pretty rock to accompany me to the grave, except I will be burnt to cinders. Maybe the Carnelian can be reused.

    1. You know, that's a nice thought. You can leave your jewelry to the fam and still take a pretty with you. I might have to think about doing that. Did you know when Lord Byron was 'burnt to cinders' his heart survived?

  10. The stones you can buy in fantasy shops all have something to them. This one is pretty cool actually. I wonder if archeologists found them in burial plots. I found all the words but "Dried" kept me going for a bit.
