This piece of Wonderstone you put in the photo gallery is outstanding:



There were others in there I had to approve but nothing was written - just the pic posted, so they are just in my name.  Are they yours? I'd like to credit them to you if so.

I'm hoping I can make it out there when you go.  But...........like you said, so many places so little time.

Thank you so much Sal!  I will definitely be sure to beg you for help next time I head back to central Nevada.

My next plans are either further N in CA or the Peterson Mt/Cedarville area. Not sure I'll be going out to that area of NV. Not enough time/money to go everywhere and I want to hit a new place or two before it gets cold.  I'll post before I go so anyone who wants to get in on that trip can coordinate with me..........and............

Since it was you who led me to the apache tears, and I am so elated that a someone new shared instead of just coming in and trying to rake the info just to disappear forever, I'll be glad to get you to the green jasper if you head out that way and I can't make it.  I want this to be a community - just don't want to put info out into the air where it can be used by those who ruin sites for us. I still hope we can get together, sooner rather than later, though.  It will depend on how long the weather holds up, I guess.  There may be someone else here who will want to meet with ya if I can't make it.

Please let me know if a green jasper trip is planned!  My yellow lab and I would love to drive up and meet you guys.  I am hoping to make another trip to central Nevada later this month or early November for wood and more jaspers.  After I hit the fire agate mine . . .

Geez, so many sites to hit and so little time.   

Went up to Beatty yesterday and explored some of the old mine sites that are discussed in the Rockhounding Nevada book.  We found lots of white and blue/gray quartz and a few small pieces of white marble, nothing too exciting.  But the weather is absolutely beautiful right now and it was nice to be out in the mountains.

GOLD AND METAL HUNTING / Re: Any ideas as of what this is?!...

I'm really bad at pictures - but I don't see anything metalic looking.  Some parts look almost jaspery.  It could be some sort of marine fossil.  I'd take it to a local university and see if a paleontologist can ID it for ya. If you do, let us know what they say.  I'm a little bit curious.

Mark Twain and the location you were at.

LOLOLOL.. I should have caught that one. Maybe if I hadn't actually seen several I would have.  What went through my head is that you were thinking about fried frog legs. Ha.

where you hanging out at these days?

I'm at my sister's in Stockton until I'm well enough to live on my own again.  As far as hang?  Here mostly.  When I go, I go either to the Mt.s or NV because it's close enough that I have the strength for it.
