Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is the name given to an ape like creature that some people believe inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific North West region of North America.

Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. 

Idaho State University professor of anatomy and anthropology, Jeffrey Meldrum, believes Bigfoot exists, and he has announced a project that will hopefully see him launch a blimp to prove his theory.
Codenamed the Falcon Project, Meldrum has combined his knowledge of Bigfoot with that of an idea originally proposed by William Barnes, a Utah man who claims to have encountered Bigfoot in 1997 in Northern California.

At Corky Saint Clair we wish Dr Meldrum well in his search and  that the real Bigfoot is found  as soon as possible.

Did you know that in 12th century China flat planes of Smokey 
Quartz were used as the lenses for intricately

These types of sunglasses could not correct vision, or protect from harmful UV rays, but did reduce glare. 

Chinese judges used the smoky quartz glasses to hide their facial expressions when they interrogated witnesses.

Smokey quartz is a brown to black variety of quartz

Like other quartz gems, it is a silicon dioxide crystal. The smoky color results from free silicon, formed from the silicon dioxide by natural irradiation.

At Corky Saint Clair we have a new range of rough, faceted smokey quartz and sterling silver rings.  

They vary in price but are around $80AUD.

My photo
I like rainbows, crystals, coloured pencils, swimming, manifesting, visualising, poetry, going out for breakfast, graphic novels, air conditioning, miniature anything, clothing made from synthetic fabrics, travelling, travelling, staying in nice hotels, headphones, husbears + soft hands. I don't like people who make me feel tired.
