Collecting rocks and minerals has been a long time hobby of mine. I love all the different shapes, colors, and textures. So when I read through Revelation 21 and came across the texts about the foundations of the wall of the New Jerusalem I decided it would be amazing if I could collect a specimen of rock for each foundation. It could be a mini exhibit =).

19 And the foundations of the wall
of the city were garnished with all
manner of precious stones. The first
foundation was jasper; the second,
sapphire; the third, a chalcedony;
the fourth, an emerald;
20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth,
sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the
eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz;
the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the
eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an
amethyst.
               - Revelation 21:19,20 KJV

To sum that up, I'll need:
  • jasper
  • sapphire
  • chalcedony
  • emerald
  • sardonyx
  • sardius
  • chrysolite
  • beryl
  • topaz
  • chrysoprasus
  • jacinth
  • amethyst
The modern identity of some of these minerals is still disputed, so it's hard to know for certain exactly what I need. However I have already started to collect what I can positively identify. So far I've got jasper, chalcedony, beryl, and amethyst. I'll just have keep collecting gradually as I can afford it and as I come across the specimens needed.
