As we prepare to bid 2018 adieu and welcome 2019, we thought it might be fun to revisit the specimens that graced the Parting Shot page of each issue in 2018, and have you weigh in on your favorites.

Everyone who submits their top three picks for Parting Shot of 2018 will have their name placed be in the running to possibly win a prize package containing a geode, a cabochon, an item of lapidary jewelry art, and a pocket-sized magnifier to assist with exploration of the intricacies of rocks, gems, minerals, fossils, and lapidary art.

Submit your top three selections by emailing or mailing your picks to Rock & Gem Re: Parting Shot Picks 815 W. Fulton St. Suite 8 Waupaca, WI 54981. Each image is pictured below with it’s identification and month it appeared in Rock & Gem. Visit to see larger versions of each image.
