Many, many years ago a priest friend of mine and some Native American Indians were talking about where the spirits of men go when they die. The Pastor said that the souls of those not ascended to heaven yet were kept here on this earth until it was time for them to go to heaven. The funny thing is the native people agreed, and added that they had seen what they called spirit stones that contained the ghost of those damned to stay here instead of soaring with the Great Eagle. Although I am a highly religious man, and don’t really believe all of this nonsense, I found this idea a great possibility. Imagine how much those rocks could be worth! I mean who would pass that up, I love adventure of any type, including the hunt of the most dangerous and deadly creatures of this world, even if it is in some mysterious stones that are said to contain spirits. It would be a rarity to find something so unbelievable but who knows maybe I’d eventually find some. Here is where my story becomes interesting to say the least. Over the last few years I have come across a few locations of these supposed mysterious stones. The first I found while I was with my wife in the Kings Valley outside of ancient city of Thebes on May of 1875. The second set I found while visiting and excavating in the cities of Vesuvius in July of 1877. And the last two we have found so far were found by reading the writings from ancient writers in the ruins of the cities of Alexandria and Elike in August of 1879. I don’t really think that these stones contain spirits of any kind but there are a few very interesting things that I have figured out by having these stone around. First, they have a wonderful swirling mist inside the jewels themselves that changes colors; this is why I have started to call them Zeitgeist Gems. These Zeitgeist Gems also seem to contain some sort of power source. I had one next to my old wind up clock and now it never seems to need to be wound up. I have recently started to incorporate them into my gadget making with a very interesting outcome… an indefinite power source. Although I don’t believe that these stones contain any kind of soul or spirit, there are a couple of other weird things that have been happening around these stones. The first is that I have had some weird visions lately of people who have been dead for a long time now, but I assume that that is from working to many hours under these dim lights I call my office. The most peculiar comes with the fact that recently I have decided to sell a few small gems in broaches and a few of my gem powered inventions. The strange thing I always write letters to the buyer about the item they purchased, but when the buyer gets the letter that is enclosed with the item, there is a mysterious hand written note on the back side of the letter. Every person has said that when the note gets hot (being to close to a candle or gas lantern I assume) the writing appears. I can’t explain this writing at all since I only write on one side, so I would assume someone is playing a joke on me. Anyway, my discovery has been an amazing find and I will be revealing them at this years Worlds Fair, unveiling them for the world to see as well as selling more of them in jewelry and inventions after that. I will be able to be commissioned to build items containing this amazing power source soon as well. That is if these ghostly visions will let me get some sleep. I will keep everyone posted on the progress I am making on these amazing Zeitgeist Gems. Hope to hear from you all soon!
