Thanks for visiting ! ! !
Yellowstone Jewelry, is taken from the source locality for Montana agate - the Yellowstone River basin
from Wyoming across Montana to the North Dakota border. Montana agate
and some of the other agates and jaspers of the northern Rocky Mountains and
Great Plains states are prominent on this website, since we rockhunt on most of our vacations. And..... no, none of the stones on this website were collected in Yellowstone Park ! ! !

Early February 2010 - I finally broke down and bought "Expressions"
website software..... made many long-overdue, general updates of the site.
case you're interested, my Front Page software wouldn't work with the
Vista OS on my new computer. This made me mad (once again) at
Microsoft and I vowed not to buy any more web software from Microsoft,
but instead to learn HTML for website design & maintenance. This
took a long time, I had other priorities, etc., etc., etc. and I finally
decided that I was shooting myself in the foot by not updating this site
so I broke down bought more of Bill Gates' engineered-obsolescence
software. End of rant.....thank-you to those of you who sent
e-mails asking about Yellowstone Jewelry items, stringed instrument
