Welcome to Our New Website!

This past year has been an exciting one for me. I have been on several field trips, visited several collection sites and mines across Arizona, Nevada, Oregon and California. I found some nice material that I am sure you will be interested in.

As for me, my name is Johanna and like many rock hounds, I was exposed to rock hounding by my grandparents. They spent every vacation rock hounding in some remote areas in the southwest. They always came back with pictures and more pictures of themselves out in the field along with others looking for the treasure pieces.

I can remember the day that I was hooked, just as if it was yesterday, when my grandmother showed me a blue cabochon that grandpa had just completed. He had created it from one of the treasures the two of them had collected on the prior year’s rock hounding trip. My grandmother had created a beautiful sterling silver pendant setting for the stone.

'From The Stones' is new to the internet and yes, it will take us a little bit of time to get this site up and running and populated with a good selection of treasures.

So keep an eye on the site and check back often as I get the site up and running.
