By Sharon Brown on July 4, 2011

Sometimes people just make us smile, you know? It might be a word or a glance or the sight of a smiling face. Brenda makes me smile for all of those reasons, but it's also because of her most joyful attitude. Join me as we get to know one of my new friends, Brenda Savage.

Sharon and Lynn,
Here's what I think, not sure, though. Confused
Lapis Lazuli is found just in Afghanistan. There was lots of trade through there during the Silk Road (China) commerce and Lapis found it's way all over the world. I think it's thought be an aid/necessity used by spiritual/psychics and keeping in touch with ancestors. I remember that *everyone on the Lost Island of Atlantis* wore or carried a piece for some sort of spiritual connection to ancestors. Sedona is the site Native Americans (I think Anasazi, not sure) went for the sole purpose of connecting with ancestors. Sedona is BEAUTIFUL and "enchanting" and a place where psychics gather (vortex's and such). You might want to Wiki it but this is just off the top of my head. I have a Lapis pinky ring and LOVE it! Lovey dubby

Lapis is very beautiful. I think I was given some by some people in Mina, Nevada when we were traveling through. Mina is an old mining town (and very tiny), nice people. What I have from them are some rocks with the bright blue running through them, it's been several years now so I'm not sure I am remembering correctly that it is lapis, but if it is, it does occur in Nevada. Don't know for sure about Sedona though.

There is turquoise in Nevada... The blue and a Very beautiful lime green that I adore. I think it's (the green) found near Gardnerville. Could it be turquoise, Brenda? We'll have to read up on this!

It could also be the old lapis left behind from the Native Americans who had traded for it.

I just love lapis. And I love turquoise too. Here we have rocks that have iron ore and it is a blue color as well, different shades of blue. Of course they are located where the mines were, so now are hard to find.

I'll have to take a picture tomorrow, Susie. They gave me some turquois as well, and the rock with the deep blue in it is totally different.

Gotta think big!
Kidding, of course.
I'm thinking Sedona! No Lapis in them thar hills.... but sure is gorgeous! I'll take my Lapis ring and trek the vortexes! We went there once to visit a recently departed.... walked to a vortex, a butterfly followed us in and back out. Was awesome.

It might sound crazy, but I, too have hiked several of the 'vortexes' in Sedona, and I can tell you, as sure as I am that certain gardens/spaces/places/people/moments feel special, after visiting many of the 'vortexes' in Sedona... they are special places. I don't know if it is the spectacular scenery, the fact that you've just hiked up something, the winds that blow through while you're sitting on red rock, surrounded by red rock... or if there is a magnetic field or some special magic, but Sedona is special for a reason.

Kabul! Susie, you go for us and make a video diary and share your adventures with us! We can dig in my backyard if you want, but you'll need a pick ax. Seriously. This place used to be the river bed!

I found a beautiful little 2 deer petroglyph on a large stone in Oak Creek... Brenda, have you checked for petroglyphs in the river bed?

Nope, not going to Afghanistan. I'd be more likely to visit you in Dolores! I have my Lapis. Think I'll start wearing it again. I wear only my rose quartz Buddha... I think my Lapis pinky ring would be a nice paring!

Oh you ladies would love the Amethyst we saw in a Gem Shop that used to be on I-40 between Winslow and Holbrook. It was in a VERY large, what I would call a geode, about 2 feet across! It had very large spires of Amethyst in it. And my DH wouldn't even buy it for me, even though it's my birthstone!

This member of the quartz family gets its name from amethysts, the Greek word for sober.

I think those large geodes are found in Brazil.

If I am MIA in the Sonora-desert Museum just look for me where the Rocks and Mineral displays are....most beautiful thing I have seen. Jo

'Wow Donna... amethyst is my birthstone too.

Those are fabulous! Friend of my mother's found a huge piece (about 2 ft) in Sierra Foothills around Lake Almanor CA.
