BUDDHA BLUE LACE or BLUE DYED QUARTZ

We need your expert opinion(s).  We were told by the person that this was purchased from, this mineral is “Blue Lace”. That is what they were told when they bought it originally.

Another person thought this might be “Blue Dyed Quartz”. We would really like to confirm what this stone actually is. Please post comments in the area directly below the image. Thank You!!!

This is a carved piece weighing 20lbs. 11.5 inches wide, 7.5 inches height, 5.5 inches front to back at the widest. This piece does not have the translucence of agate or clear quartz showing in any area’s. It is slightly lighter in appearance than the photo makes it out to be.

It is thought that a laughing or smiling Buddha’s provides their owners with positive energy, prosperity, happiness, wealth, and contentment.

PIES BAKED IN VINTAGE CAST IRON

I for one strip them, re-season them, then return them to service. I cook with them. You might be surprised to know there is a whole group of us out there doing some creative cooking/baking using charcoal and cast iron. If the price is right, Antique Shops, Estate Sales, and garage sales, are my favorite place to find old iron.

Both pies shown below were constructed in a standard glass pie dish. Then elevated slightly inside a Cast Iron Dutch Oven, via a trivet. Then baked using charcoal.

For the recipes and baking technique use the following links:

Octo-pie or Octopus Pie

Pumpkin Pie

SHONA SCULPTURE

Picked up this stunning Shona Sculpture today. This is an artist signed piece.
Approximate dimensions are 7 inches by 20 inches.

This style of art is rather new to me. But I find I am drawn to the simplistic and tasteful lines of the sculpture.

Red Comet “Fire Grenades”

Have you bought, sold, or collected these? They are often found in older homes, garages, shops, and barns. Below is some brief history. Please share your knowledge of these by adding a comment.

Many of the throw-able “fire grenades” were filled with CTC, a.k.a carbon tetrachloride. This liquid vaporized and inhibited the combustion process. An effective fire extinguisher.

Some early models were filled with salt water but CTC was much more effective. CTC extinguishers were withdrawn in the 1950’s due to the chemical’s toxicity. Exposure in high concentrations of CTC damages the nervous system and internal organs.

These “fire grenades” were once sold door to door by salesmen for the Red Comet Manufacturing Company. Red Comet started in Denver in 1919.

Should you break one of these and spill the liquid in a public place or building now days, you would more than likely be faced with a hazmat type of cleanup situation.

The company is still around, now out of Englewood, Colorado. The company now sells brand name portable fire extinguishers.
