As Ken says,
There are many beautiful pictures and images hidden away inside numerous regular rocks and gemstones. These wonderful treasures are just waiting to be discovered. I have cut open various mundane stones, and discovered their hidden treasures. Some of these beautiful images look like an Ansel Adams photograph, and others look like a painting hanging in the Louvre. These wonderful images include: faces, animals, people, plants/flowers, landscapes (desert, aquatic, and outer space scenes), and much more.
Over time, I have learned that finding these “treasures” has a lot to do with the “the luck of the cut“. I said, “the luck of the cut,“ because there are a number of conditions that must be in place for the rock to give up its “treasures”. These conditions include: when cutting open the rock, the slice must be at the right angle, and along the image's plane, (and do this without X-Ray vision.) AND most of all, there must be a “treasure” buried within the rock! (Most are “duds.)
Ken Rogers has been a “Spook”- (M.I. Agent), Photojournalist, Adventurer, Rock hound, Lapidary Artist, Jewelry designer, Speaker, & much more. He also mentions hang glider pilot, scuba diver, and white water kayaker as well.
