    I hope Beckett does its best to keep Rock & Gem one of the best off the shelf mineral and lapidary magazines out there. I also subscribe to two others for the technical knowledge and that is important, but Rock & Gem grabs the attention of folks that are often just finding out what it is about this hobby they love so much. Sometimes just a reminder of when they were a kid and collecting to full blown projects.

    Please Beckett, don’t plunder and destroy this great magazine. I will enjoy watching you evolve it the next level.
