WonderLites: Glowing Rocks, Minerals & Gems

I grew up vacationing on the beaches of Lake Superior & enjoying my passion hunting for rocks & precious gems.

With a degree in science & now retired from a day job; I now rekindled my rock passion & am beginning a new chapter of not just hunting & polishing but illuminating them!!!

My Painted Beauties…under UVA

Rocks, Minerals & Gems can be purchased soon…visit Station X Online

Natural Treasures Under UVA

Looking to de-stress, relax & clear your mind of daily chaos? I find total peace while hunting & working with my many rocks.

Scientific proof that “Earthing” has very high mental & physical benefits makes rock hunting one of the best activities one can do.

Whether it be painting, sorting, holding or illuminating rocks, minerals or gems you will feel the phenomenal overall effects.

Equipment to use for illumination takes lots of research & hit & miss efforts. I found the following to be very good & affordable as well…hope this blog helps you get started in Firing Up your precious finds!!!

(The following links are to my Amazon affiliate account & I do receive commissions on purchases).

This light works great on minerals that glow with UVA long wave, can even connect multiples for a Grand Display!

Looking to hunt for some treasures or illuminate other possessions? Perfect light for most everything.

This little treasure is light weight, long battery life & can focus on specific areas.

I’m planning to use these strip lights for my home & in addition for my expo displays. 16 feet should be plenty to fill up a room! Perfect for Halloween too!

Most minerals & gems do require short range to become visible to our human eyes. Found this one to be very affordable & does the job firing your treasures at a closer range, but it is some what dim.

Are you a little more serious but can’t spend $100s or $1000s on a UVC light? This one has 11 watts of power & is considered one of the best for its value.

Of course with any hobby or activity there are safety risks. Please be safe out hunting, stay hydrated, cautious of your surroundings & with use of these devices please wear the appropriate eye protection!

Gotta LOVE seeing the “Finishline” during a halfer!

Mine are Rock Hunting, SUP & Running. Over the past years I’ve completed numerous 5k, 10k & half marathons.

I ran cities, rural areas & shorelines; smooth pavement, rough terrain, fields & even hills & mountains!!!

Survived the Mountain Run.

Definitely a fun & exhausting day…thank goodness for great shoes, good hydration & wonderful layers!

Using the best shoes, staying hydrated & with excellent layers I push further & harder! The following are my highest recommendations:

I dehydrate quickly, causing light headedness, spasms & weakness. Gnarly is my hydration top pick.

Do you live in a colder climate zone? I do & a very good base layer is a must. Enertor is great all seasons with its sweat wicking & energizing material this technology is a must!

Energy Shirt

Enertor Socks also available!

Energy Pants.

Shoes? Yes Brooks has been my best friends for several years…

Brooks Shoes.

Some winter races are fun, but I have a very difficult time with the cold – I am getting older – BUT… thank goodness for “Treadmills”! I can keep up with my stamina & endurance all winter long. Watch for my future blog on the best treadmills.

Fitness Move of the Week 11/5/16

dsc00061

This move is great if you travel or sit a lot & helps open hips & relieves lower back pain. Is kind of fun too watching expressions on people’s faces!

All you have to do is get up & walk; however backwards!

Stand straight & take steps backwards.

When I travel & stop for fuel or rest I walk backwards around my vehicle 4 – 5 times…YES instant relief & I can go on for many miles!!!..
