The Secret Life of Parking Lots: Turning IKEA Parking Lot Rocks Into Beautiful Gemstones

Do you ever scan through the rocks in parking lots just in case there might be one there that needs to be rescued? If that’s you, you might be surprised to learn that you’re not alone! As a matter of fact, there’s a lot of us out there.

So what are you supposed to do when you find yourself in an Ikea parking lot, surrounded by all different types of rocks? You go rockhounding, of course!

In this video the father and son quartet from Rockhounding Life, Jason, Nolan, Chase & Travis do just that. Except this time they take it a step farther. After taking home the rocks they rescued from the parking lot, they slab them, polish them and turn them into beautiful pieces of wearable art!
