>And there was another one located in Torrance, California in a small
shopping center near Lomita Blvd. and Crenshaw; they later moved to Alondra
Blvd. (I think) in Hawthorne near the May Co. shopping center. I used to
beg my dad and/or mom to take me there (was only 5 miles from home) so I
could get still another novice band rock for my Johnson Adventurer or
DX-40... Can't remember their name, though. Anyone else remember them? I
think they might have been Jet Crystals. The place in Torrance was a single
room in a small shopping center and looked just like a rock collector's
place (lapidary) with table-mounted wet saws and grinding wheels.<

Steve....Correct! Jet Crystals it was. I used to go there myself occasionaly
in the mid 60's...never went to the Hawthorne location though. Torrance
