Episode 16: September 1979 Previously Rockhounding

In this issue some of the articles fall short of what's promised by their titles but we fill in the gaps with helpful information, such as the best ways to preserve your finds on their way from the field to home, and our experience with polishing soapstone. We also learn a great new word for lapidary enthusiasts thanks to the Frantic Fumbler, who also wrote a great article spotlighting the lapidary world's transition to using diamonds. We're getting close to the end of the 1970s and some of the articles seem to be foreshadowing trends that we'll be seeing in the next decade.   Check out currentlyrockhounding.com/podcast to see this issue's cover art and more!
