Why did I pick up that rock? By Jason Badgley

In the presentation Jason will talk about the rocks we pick up in the field, and what the could look like inside because everyone overlooked a good specimen.  We’ll talk about and show examples of desert varnish oxidation weathering on the stones, and the waterworn exterior of stone jade rinds and luster. Join us for this much needed, informative talk.

Jason's Bio:
I have been into Rockhounding and lapidary since I was 7 years old.  My grandfather introduced me to this wonderful hobby.  Since then I have worked in Mexico as a professional prosecutor.  I have been in three different books, "Agates and Jaspers of North America," "A Study of Agates and Their Inclusions of the California Coast," and "Jaspers and Agates of the California Coast Ranges."  I currently do live sales on Facebook every Thursday and Saturday.  I also became an Eagle Scout, too.  I have always loved nature.
