I was at the gem show at the Ogden fair grounds.

There was this crystal, transparent, about the size and shape of an egg.

I took off my hat. Put the stone in it and held it up to my face.

I didn't but it. The damn thing didn't glow. Must have been broken.

I did get a lot of odd looks though.

Should have tried a few more stones. Maybe it's like getting a wand. The stone picks it's master and you needed to try out a few stones til you 'felt' the right one.

I think you'd have better luck with an ordinary piece of schist. The geologist’s Boner.

Even better: You could have bought it put it in a hat in front of your friends and said you could read a new book, etc.!

His father found it as a young man and gave it to DH. He took it to an exmo conference in Las Vegas, put it in a hat, and passed it around for everyone to get a close up look. He was a little nervous that someone might pocket it, but it was returned to him without incident, except for giggles and guffaws and a little hooting.

LOL! That's great.
Maybe you should have muttered the correct Reformed Egyptian code words.

I love going to the gem and mineral shows. There are so many beautiful things to see from nature.

It only works in secret and on the second full moon of the summer harvest.

Crystals are good only in the light, to catch the colors of the rainbow and give you a prism effect.

Sounds like you had fun though, and isn't that what counts?

But he could lead people around the country organizing them for his family's personal gain.
