A Stone Synchronicity

When we bought and moved into this house years ago I noticed something strange about the yard.  A certain large part of it is covered in stones, but not stones that were naturally there.  Someone that lived in this house before us was a serious rock hound.  Obviously, being a minor rock hound I have always thought this was awesome!

Every summer I go out and try to dig out stones (and lots of petrified wood) that have been buried by wind, rain and whatever.  The top is a pile that I dug out and the bottom in just a random shot of one of the many rocky areas in the yard.

I don't know what all those stones are, but I do know there is a lot of quartz, petrified wood, and much that looks like carnelian, some that looks like raw turquoise and rest I have no idea, except that they are not natural to the yard, especially since they are centralize in one area.  The petrified wood I know did not come from this area, but I assume that a lot of the others did come from hikes around here.  This area has tons of the most common rock I find -- quartz.

I have often wondered if the concentration of quartz in this canyon attracts UFOs and other esoteric phenomena.  Well, that is not the point I wanted to make, but rather that I do think it is kind of a synchronicity that someone so attracted to stones ends up in a house with a yard full of them and I didn't at all know about them until after we moved in.  It is almost like some kind of sign.  A sign or what -- who knows, but maybe that I am suppose to continue with my first obsession which was a love of stones?

Very cool Lesley; what a nice find!

I think there's something to that; I don't know what exactly but it seems right; same with deserts as settings for UFO and mystical events.

I agree, rocks are magical - looks like you have a treasure-trove in your backyard!
