This is the thing that amazed me in the beginning and still does.  I
still find it unbelievable that I can hold a piece of another world in
my hand.  And sometimes I do just that.  I hold it, I fondle it, I look
at it under a microscope, and i dream of the journey of billions of
years that it took to "land" in my lap.  And when I go backpacking to
get away from it all, I put a little Canyon Diablo in my pocket for
"good luck".  These gems are priceless and I pitty anyone who is just in
it for the money.
