Once upon a time …

Once upon a time – there were three friends. There was Chrys – Chrys O’ Colla if you wanted to be formal; Rose, from the famous Quartz family; and Amy Thyst.

And they lived in Labrador-ite.

But they all had a dream. A dream to go on a Green Aventurine vacation – flying up the river Amazon-ite. To get a Birdseye Rhyolite view.

But there was a Big Hole in their plans.

They all had a short-coming – a flaw, if you will. One had a bad case of Tiger Eye, one was just Crazy Lace, and one was a Pyrite. Well – apprenticed to one, anyway.

Chrys said, I’m no Picasso Jasper, but it’s as clear as Rock Crystal to me, we need to paint a Picture Jasper to raise the Goldstone to afford our trip.

There were Sodalited with that plan, instead of just Obsidian around.

Soon they had raised enough money for a cheap flight. It wasn’t a very reputable airline, there was livestock – a bunch of cows actually – on the airplane, and the plane itself was fabric glued over wood.

I’m not going up in that Moo-kaite, said Rose. So she called her brother Smokey Quartz to bail them out.

And that’s How-lite they got enough Gold Coin to watch the Sunset Dumortierite and be big Fans of the Amazon-nite while living in the Lapis of luxury.
