“South Padre Sunrise”

Description from Lyric Chick aka Bev: Elaine got me started with the Sunrise thing. The water at SPI (South Padre Island) is sort of a murky greenish blue, the sands are white...not as white as New Mexico, but much lighter than, say, California. Because the land is so flat, the sunrises/sunsets are panoramic...mostly purple and firey peach/gold. I like textures, thus the contrasts of the tumbles & nuggests. Not sure about the tsavorite in this one, but was really drawn to it. Can anyone tell me more about the stone...where it's from, chemical properties, energy level?

    The Tsavorite is very much one of the colors of the Gulf, a little further out than land as it tends to be muddy closer in. Tsavorite is a garnet. See Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsavorite
    for more information. The rainbow sochoo jade is very reminiscent of a Texas sky. Great pic.

    Yeah, me too, sadly. Every now and then I get homesick for the smell of salt air. But, it’s not like the “old” days there any more. Thanks for the info, Angela. I think tsavorite has become a new favorite.

    Love the pick! Never been to South Padre, though. My usual spot is Port A. I try to get there several times a year.

    Hey, I’ve been to P.A. It’s a little more “fishy” than SPI. My parents were always dragging me fishing, hunting, etc., so I kinda avoid all that now. I grew up surfing on SPI when the Beach Boys were cool. I live north of Dallas now. From one end to the other (LOL)
