    to be honest this picture could use some work, its out of focus/blurry and the colors are very weak

    Thanks, you're right- I probably shouldn't have posted that, but it was really tough to get. It was shot through thick dirty glass with only available light. No one is allowed in there since the owner's passing a few years ago. The 90-something-year-old man, Oscar Robertson, owned most of the small N GA town of Ball Ground and was quite a character, owning mineral rights to large tracts of land. But he made his rock shop customers stand outside and point out the riches they wanted to make an offer on. Several buildings lining the street are still completely full of semi-precious stones to this day, all locked up.
