Little things can sometimes lead on to big things.
At one stage of my life I spent much time ‘rockhunting’ and as a
result of taking my children on these trips my eldest son is now a
consulting geologist with gold mining companies.
As a further result I spent about 8 years as a manufacturing and
retail jeweller and for many years have been a jade carver.
So, go for it, foster the interest, the benefits may be immeasurable
