When I was maybe seven years old, I thought I had found the motherlode of diamonds because my friends and I had found some rather large rocks with a lot of quartz in them.
Of course, we thought they were diamonds or something super valuable. We were talking about how we would spend our newfound fortunes. The first item on everyone’s list was a new BMX bike followed by new Star Wars figures or baseball cards.
We showed my friend’s dad the rocks and he chuckled and told us that these rocks were not very rare at all and were probably not worth a whole lot to anyone since they could be readily found in the surrounding fields.
We were somewhat dismayed, but we still thought they were really cool. We divided them up and kept them for some time.
