'So Many Rocks'

crta.png

In this place people come to see and buy various minerals, crystals and semi-precious stones. One can choose from a vast array of stones. Some even use these for therapeutic purposes. I'm not sure how it works but it probably does to some extent, if you want to believe it, of course.

Most of the people buy them because these stones look interesting. They will display them on a shelve at home and indulge in the fact that the stones are there. As Gollum would say: 'My Precious!'

It is not easy to find these rocks a bearded fellow tells me. While most of the sellers buy cheap and sell higher, he searches for stones himself and spends days in digging them out of the ground.

After some time, collecting and selling these beautiful items easily becomes a full-time job and, consequently, a lifestyle, I guess. A lady tells me she started collecting them just a few years back and she runs her own business today. Fast advancement curve! :-)

From my experience, when a person makes a full-time job out of his/her hobby it becomes just that - a full-time job with all pros and cons. Be it as may, when that happens, one has no hobby anymore.

Enjoy your day! :-)

I remember how in the early 2000s there were popular advertisements that sold "magic" minerals. They talked about the incredible properties of stones that can cure many diseases. A beautiful lie, but many believed it, alas.
Personally, I have not studied the healing of certain minerals. I heard many times that there are stones that bring good luck, improve health, even "magnetize" money into your life. I can not judge whether this is really so.
But I think that this is a good business. If we regard these crystals, minerals from the etetic point of view, they are beautiful. Many of them can be an excellent decoration.
Hobbies first of all should bring pleasure. If you work all day, this is a full-time job. The concept of a hobby is no longer relevant in this case.
Thank you:)

Yes people of different origins have different belief. Some people buy stones for decoration piece and some people belief wearing stone will affect your body and characteristic. It's good that this business has a good potential and it's a source of full time employment to any people.
Yes sellers always looking for more and more profit they easily make you fool if you don't have any idea about the prices. nice pics of amazing stones together. First time i saw a lot of stones at one platform. Keep sharing @velimir

yeah, sir it looks like this old man is well aware of these minerals and salts and it not easy to search them and them working hard to dig them out, it is not one salt or mineral, they are in bulk and imagine the hard work this old man has done in searching and digging out these beautiful precious minerals, yes people do buy these salts and minerals to cure some decrease, you should believe it. as far as stone concerns people use stones according to religious beliefs. Our holy bOok QURAN has tell us about two precious stones Yaqoot and Marjaan__, They are precious for Muslims as according to their religious belive, some of them use stones when they found them beautifiul and attractive.
thank you sharing this wonderful place and thanks for telling us about this hard working old man, my prayes are with him, May God bless him always.

We have known for various forms of crystals. In the form of a display of vases or lamp'kristal. In the form of jewelry can be a ring of eyes, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and pendants.

Several types of crystals are used as a strand of material strand or necklace bracelet amethyst, rock crystal, aragonire, green phantom.

Crystals can also be used to strengthen the energy centers in the body. Amethyst crystals, for example, are soothing and soothing to the mind, providing joy, helping to cope with stress. This stone is effective to help overcome headaches, migraines, sleep disorders (insomnia), and stroke.

Rock crystal efficacious calms the entire nervous system, strengthens the pineal gland, adds vitality to life, also maintain heart health, lymph nodes, and blood circulation. Rock crystal is soothing, so it's good for the means of meditating, warding off distracting energy, creating peace, and balancing emotions.

My best friends on earth run a business like this. Started because one of them is a designer and maker of jewelry, and she needed a dependable supply. It now supports their entire lifestyle and they live pretty darn well.

She designed a necklace for me to wear when I'm riding. The design is very simple, but it is the green tourmaline stone that she considered important to the equation. Must work, I'm still wearing it and still riding.

Thanks for a great picture of a fascinating 'sub culture'. It's really pretty darn cool.

How interesting. Well yes of course many believe that stones have effect on your health.
Crystals and stones store, reflect and transmit energy and our bodies are perhaps receptive to these energies. Well either way this place seems very interesting. I guess these stones are very much cheaper than the fancy "New Age" stores we usually get these from.
Thank you for posting.

All time is special for the couple . Good concept for the couple .

I am waiting for your next new update news .

Your post is always different i follow your blog everytime , your post is so helpful . I always inspire of your post on my steem work . Thank you for sharing @velimir

Keep good work of every time ...

I have heard many times that people buy them because they attract as they say luck or prosperity to the place where they are, I think they buy more for myth than for something else, I imagine and they are a bit expensive, right?

·

no not really :) Unless you need to have the huge ones.

Those stones look so beautiful, and those that use them for health purposes might be right too. We have a particular stone like that here in Nigeria too, it can cure almost all children skin infections.
I don't know if their is any other, but I'm sure of that one.

When you make your work round your hubby, you won't have your work all your life again.... Lol

These colorful stones are looking awesome. In this world you can choose anything to live your life. Any kind of hobby you have you can make it full time and it will give the real pleasure.

Money is not the real pleasure, the real pleasure is to live your dreams.

I am a traveler too. You please have a look on my recent visit to Mussoorie, India. Amazing view there.

That's a good bit of wisdom at the end; when a hobby turns into a job, it isn't quite a hobby anymore. May I ask what kind of experience you speak from? Although I don't doubt it at all

The stones are nice and beautiful, they can certainly add flavor to home decorating

In this blog stones are looking so precious. If your job is your hobby then you cab acheive vig goals in your life. In these picture every thing is different that i have ever seen in my life.
@velimir you said well that you hobby turned in you job. Some stones which have some special effects on your body, according to some people's beliefs. I just like the amazing colors of different stones.

There are some stones which have some special effects on your body, according to some people's beliefs. But I am not aware of those effects and neither I have tried to have stones ever. I just like the amazing colors of different stones.

All item is special for the couple. Good concept for the couple.

I used to know a couple of people who believed in the special properties of stones and minerals. Not sure if I buy into it, but it is an intersting concept alright.

@velimir those stones affect the aura and help with energy issues . ..keeping in mind that everything is vibration the specific vibration tune us

stone does have a mustika that can be felt for us who mengakainya.itu cipta the omnipotent can not we deny it

Stones, precious ones. I know a lot of them but what i see in pictures are totally different from what i have seen or heard.

You are right @velimir, a hobby turned to a full time job is no longer a hobby but just what it is, a full time job.

Your every post just excellent .Thanks for the share in post sir

Interesting subject of the trade of minerals, crystals and semiprecious stones and photos, of course everything is therapeutic even where you want in your acceptance, because everything depends on the "crystal that you look at it", the radiation of the energy that emanates these elements is for many a reality, that is proven!

I am not allowed in that kind of places. I spend too much money :D :D :D

hi @velimir, it's valuable stuff,:)
