|It was no exaggeration
for historian Walter Prescott Webb to describe the Big Bend region
as "an earthwreck in which a great section of country was
shaken down, turned over, blown up, and set on fire." In
short, there is ample evidence of millions of years of dramatic
geological activity, with the craggiest of mountains to rocks
of all kinds, from mammoth piles of boulders to pebbles. In this
interview with Paul Graybeal, owner of Marfa's Moonlight Gemstones,
learn about the beautiful agates, wondrous thundereggs, and more.
