I am new to this site. I am retired and I recycle granite and marble scrap from counter top makers. I make such items as trivets, pet memorials, pavers, scripture plaques, garden stones, etc. I also enjoy lapidary. Some of the material I get from the counter top fabricators is gem quality, labradorite, various anorthocites, some very pretty marble, etc. I also enjoy communication with folks of like interests. Trading ideas is a great way to learn.
