Hope Diamond old rock day imageTell Us About Your Favorite Rock on January 7, Old Rock Day

by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe

Do you like searching for interesting old rocks, gems or fossils? Then Old Rock Day, January 7th, may be the holiday for you. Not every holiday can be traced to a particular place, person or point of origin, including Old Rock Day.

How do people in Silicon Valley celebrate “Old Rock Day”? Good ways include visiting a rock shop, barbecuing on coal (old rocks) picking up a pretty rock to start a rock collection, hiking a trail of old rocks, searching for fossils on a field trip, or (my favorite) buying a new (to me) “old rock”, jewelry in particular.

On one of our family trips to Yosemite with my late mother Judy Carr, we stopped at a random rock Gems Old Rock Day imageand pawn shop. Together we discovered and bought a cool old gold and turquoise ring to share.

Buying a new old rock is my idea of a great way to celebrate “Old Rock Day”. My daughter recently visited Yosemite and took several photos of “old rocks” including El Capitan and Half-Dome. Sharing a story about a favorite old rock is one more fun way to enjoy “Old Rock Day”.

I have 2 very special rocks!

Herkimer Diamond is a double-terminated quartz crystal.They were found in the Mohawk Valley and look like a faceted diamond and water clear quartz.  Very high vibration point.  

Moldivite is a gemstone found in Czech Republic and is a product of a meteor collision 15 million years ago. It was thought to be the green stone in the Holy Grail. Many who are not very senitive to the vibrational qualities of stones could feel these qualities in Moldivite.

I have some large crystal rocks with many points that were made into tea candle holders. I love those things.
