One of my hobbies, stones
As a small child, stones fascinated me. I would search for stones in our garden and I would find interesting pieces. My mother, who was very good at it, would show me what to look for.
On our driveway, there was medium sized gravel which came from the river Rhine. When you come to think of it, this gravel must have come from far away, perhaps even from different countries being pushed over thousands of years by the force of water. The small fossils or the imprint of fossils I found ever so exciting. I could spend hours searching for unusual stones.
A special stone from the garden
One time I found a stone nearly as big as my fist and my mother took it to the dentist in our village.
He cut and polished it. It turned out to be a beautiful agate and I still have that stone lying in an old showcase in my living room. I have a small collection with pieces from different countries.
Unusual patterns on the floor tiles
My Fathers office in Holland, he was director of a water company, supplying water to 7 cities had a wonderful fossil stone floor from Germany with the imprint of Ferns and Leafs. As a little girl, I would look at the different patterns and imagine whole stories around it. I have continued my search for interesting stones into my adult life.
On an expedition with my metal detector
A few years ago, while using my metal detector in the south of Spain where I now live, I found a wonderful composite of sea shells cemented into a big single stone. I found it some 5 km away from the sea lying on a field which had been recently plowed, how good it was not damaged.
Going to different countries I always try to find something interesting for my collection.
