***New York Part 3 Continued

Unlike Maryland or DC, the fact that you are staying at the bus stop in New York doesn’t mean the bus will stop to pick you up, not even you stepping forward makes any difference. You have to wave to the driver showing your intention to get on the bus. I missed two busses until I figured it out. The third bus had a broken farebox for cash, and I have no idea what I would have done if the driver didn’t just let me on for free. The situation seemed usual to me because he simply made a pretty clear hand-shoulder-arm gesture and I went and took a seat. After a quick ride I got off, walked a block towards the park and finally reached the museum building. It would have impressed me more if I wasn’t wet to the skin and understood modern art. But (!) it did have roof.
A long line moved fast. I bought a $20 ticket, downloaded the app, got a set of headphones, a guide brochure and started my way up the serpentine. I’m not going to lie, I met quite a few pieces of art that attracted my attention longer than 10 seconds, though I listened to the app-guide info at least trying to get what it was all about. Most of the pictures along the serpentine represented a white piece of material covered with faded colour stripes and lines. Some of those were hardly or not at all seen until you come right to the masterpiece. It was pretty weird to see a man standing in front of an almost blank rectangular or one that had a stripe of pink paint on white one side and white paint stripe on white on the other side. By no means I want to offend anyone here. This is pretty much an impression of a non specialist, not even an amateur girl finding a place to hide from the rain in a fall Sunday morning in one of the most famous museums in New York.

As my collection of crystals, minerals and let's face it very large rocks, grow! These unassuming tumbles are my by far my favourites 😍 .
.
I've got a few new ones...
Top row L2R:
Que Sera Stone 🔘
Lakelandite
Preseli Bluestone 🔘
Cornish Serpentine .
.
Indigo Gabbro
Pinolith 🔘
Snowflake Obsidian
Chinese Letter Stone
.
Galaxy Stone
Nuummite
Hypersthene 🔘
Astrophyllite 🔘
Arfensonite 🔘
.
I would just love to have all these as bracelets, but I'm missing a few! I'm doing quite well though, the ones with 🔘 are the ones I already sell. 🖤 I do use a very similar Serpentine, which is listed on Etsy, and I have loads of Snowflake Obsidian beads, which I haven't listed yet. .
The top row, except for the Que Sera Stone are all from the UK 🖤 Lakelandite (honestly, real name) is from the Lake District and is quite a new stone to the market - no beads are made yet, but I have been asking :) It has a a similar look to Que Sera Stone - bits of minerals, all chopped up millennia ago to make this wonderful composite, said to bring peace and order to chaotic situations :)
.
Indigo Gabbro or Mystic Merlinite as it's often called, I have been looking for in bead form, too! If anyone can help? I would be most grateful 🖤🙏🏼🖤 It's so odd, you can buy all the tumbles, polished points and palm stones - but no beads! 😞 .
Saying that, there is one website I have found, but they are $650 a string!! I kid you not!! 🤑 Pretty outrageous if you ask me!
.
Be careful, the only Indigo Gabbro beads on Etsy are in fact Larvikite, the cheapest of all the beads I buy - it upsets me deeply that people are being mislead and tricked... .
I have found a supplier of tons of Indigo Gabbro rough, so I might have to make this happen myself... 🖤
