to think that the majority of us a sticking to one or two families of stones is completely ridiculous. there are so many gagillions of interesting slabs out there- a ton of which could be made beautiful if you chose the right setting. i say we start picking from the heart when it comes to these beauties- use your head later to figure out how to make them shine. it’s somewhat similar to selecting an engagement ring- you want it to have a timelessness but don’t you also want to be a touch different? perhaps if going the carrera route it’s important to find a way to make it your own, whether it be black hardware or unique formations. regardless of if i’d be willing to practice what i preach big up’s to those who take the chance.
