Summer Solstice

Today is the summer solstice, longest daylight in the northern hemisphere and the opposite in the southern hemisphere.  Summer starts in the north, winter in the south.  I finished four cabochons.  Started with nine, but all the yellow quartz had too many fractures to stay in one piece.  The yellow quartz went into the driveway.  The other four were completed.  All started out as 20 x 15 mm ovals, but one had a piece fly off, so it became a tear drop shape and is 19 x 14 now.  Cutting stones is very relaxing and I love the results.



 These three are fossilized palm tree.  The fourth is a piece of Jadeite.
