Cuprite, a beautiful red gem valued for its rarity, fire and brilliance comes to us from the common copper sulfide yet if not for the softness of the stone would be more valuable and desirable than diamonds. Do you see why I love rocks?
Sometimes you can figure out a lot about people just by looking at the beautiful material that comes from a common piece of stone. How else would you describe those who have been through the heat and pressure of life, felt like they are being swamped by the waters of tribulations; sometimes weathered, twisted and beaten, and yet come out as some of the most brilliant of gems? In my opinion, people are a lot like rocks, and rocks are amazing.
