I absolutely would love to see your pics here! I am glad you posted about what you do, it seems very interesting that you notice the different
feelings and dreaming when you camp in those places that you mine or dig. Your lifestyle sounds very appealing to me.

This is a slab of Malachite that was sent from a friend in Belgium but I have no idea where this Malachite originated. This particular slab is
considered grade "A" lapidary material.
And here's a cabochon cut from Malachite banded with Azurite. The little vug has Hematite druze.
I didn't collect the Malachite above.
And if I can elaborate on the experiences I've had without highjacking this thread....
When I said I felt a connection to the land, it wasn't entirely accurate. What I meant was that I feel connected to everything, the wind, the earth,
the flora and fauna, the sky, the stars... everything. I believe that we all feel this to some degree but when I'm in certain areas w/high
concentrations of pure Silica (quartz would be an example) in whatever form, I feel that connection strengthen tremendously. Almost everyone I know
that visits these sites has the same types of cathardic experiences in some way or another.
I don't want to highjack this thread so I'll stop there and get back on the topic...
I'm always inclined to accept the simplest explanation for the un-explained so I'm gonna have to go with Dog prints in the pictures. ;-) The mark in
last picture is a little unusual looking though but it's hard to tell without seeing it in person.
I'd be interested to hear what experiences you might have with the Malachite now that you've gained more information from the other posters here.
Woodwytch~ Can I ask why the stone should be rough and not polished? Just curious... Thanks.
Edit to add:
Woodwytch~ I'm gleaning from your name and your knowledge of the metaphysical here that you might be able to explain further how this stuff works!
Can you elaborate on the topic of stones and the energies associated with them? You mentioned transfering your own energies into a stone, are there
other types of energies manifested in stones?
One thing that has always intrigued me when I cut a stone is that sometimes I find faces in them, as if they were painted by a master. Some appear to
be trapped or in torment, others appear calm or joyful. It's the strangest thing....
I feel like I'm highjacking this thread so I must apologize. Maybe I can pursuade Woody to start a new thread covering the questions I've asked.
Pretty please? ;-)
Honestly... my interest in these sort of topics is the reason I joined ATS but I became bogged down in the conspiracies... maybe I'll just stick
around the Paranormal forum form now on... lol...
