So, favourite combinations?

A futuristic Hematite / Opal Glass combination?

Malachite / Lapis, for those with $6000 to spare?

Or utter chaos with Snow Flake / Dalmation Jasper?

I always liked the Black Gold Stone/ Labradorite combination. It reminds me of space :milky_way:

I have had 6000$ :joy:

hematite/opal glass looks very playable! clear quartz for white would look nice too.

Also nice: moss agate/jade. leopard skin jasper would look awesome with rose quartz, but they might be too similar, in which case id choose leopard jasper/shell :slightly_smiling_face:.

About the only one that doesn’t call to me is the Fluorite. All the others I’m craving.

Oh, except maybe the Jade … it’s a bit washed out :wink:

I’m sure he meant the colour, but all I see is the “bad shape” :rofl:

I always thought the lava with either the crystal, cracked crystal or fluorite would look pretty sweet.

Black line Jasper with shell F1, that to me seems a nice combination, they would almost be the inverse of eachother.

You know your a go addict when: an entire chat about being a go addict becomes a chat talking about different types of go stones.

… you cry after going to gostones.com and seeing that each of those sets seriously are $400. And you can’t stop mousing around to see the bigger pictures anyhow.
