Selenite, chaga steaks and tea post

24 Mar

Just relaxing enjoying a chaga tea while viewing a blewit I entered in my image page last night.

Since a nice chunk of Selenite was already on our step, it seems only polite for it to share the spot light with the Chaga steaks I’ve sliced for drying today. If you are going to dry your own Chaga I suggest you keep your temperature around 120 degrees F or below.

Click on the photo below to see the many thin transparent  layer.

Here is a  close up of the Selenite, this particular piece I collected 25 years ago just under the water level of a steep banked sinkhole pond, I had a challenging time getting down to it as I noticed it shining from the opposite side of the pond and ended up laying head first from the bank feeling for it and eventually was able to bring it up. Travelling that area is interesting as many of the sinkholes are collapsed caves, one small lake in the area is over 200 ft deep. At the time of my Selenite collection it appeared to be freshly exposed earth with the transparent gypsum peeking out here and there.I wasn’t sure what it was then, other than it was unusual, I bought the audubon field guide for rocks and minerals soon after and this made my wild food  adventures even more enjoyable as it opened my eyes a little wider to things in general. Have a great weekend naturally.

    Chaga Tea? As a newcomer I obviously need to dig deeper to find out more about this concoction. Have a great weekend.

      Yes mobius, check this out, the powder form is the easiest to use and can be added to coffee, tea, or made as a tea alone. You can add the cold tea to soda, etc. There are only a few folks who could have mild reactions to chaga so check a few sites as they mostly mention who shouldn’t drink this product. There are a few sources selling chaga products in Akron. One lb of powdered Chaga should last several months and should cost around $50.00 They also use Chaga in skin care products as well. cheers now

    I like the selenite. It’s always enjoyable to open our eyes a little wider to things in general.

      Thanks Jeremy, Yes the true nature is always presently available, goes un-noticed at times, the un-noticing habit we innocently learned is unreal and a joy to drop for sure. I enjoyed your post today, the true nature was singing in the rain beautifully.
