Re: [AGA Member] A Rocky Start to Greetings

Very dark rock, similar to what Amano uses in many setups,
can be picked up along the San Francisco coast... even
darker in many cases. I'm not sure what the legalities are
surrounding the taking of rocks from beaches, but suffice
it to say I'm a lawbreaker if there are restrictions :-o

Hike around the beaches near the Golden Gate Bridge
(Baker/North Baker). The rocks are super dense and heavy,
but if you're in the bay area and looking for nice stuff,
worth the trekking & trudging.
