so we were dragging out our last cut of rock in the tunnel we are advancing at the mine a few days ago, and in the rock there is a cool quartz/iron pyrite seam. its pretty neat. so i grabbed a small piece and forgot about it till the wifie was just giving the mining clothes their weekly washing and found this in the bottom of the machine. mike, i even forgot to tell you about this when i picked it up...... oh well.

dont let the images fool ya, this chunk is only about the size of a penny. there were more and some larger ones, they are loaded in the chute now :lol: this one i just grabbed cause it was in front of me and stuck it in the pocket.

You could find a bunch of gems and make something for that gem of a wife of yours. Speaking of which, did you find that Kodak website ok?

Yeah that is nice looking rock.. Small stringers of quartz add a nice taste to different rocks. I've found some good pieces of crystallized magnetite with quartz. Pretty neat..
