Mighty fine lookin' case you got there, jgards! Smiley

You know, it's true, that here in Wake County the streets are paved with gold.
Well, at least the clay under some of the streets is golden.
And for you diggers out there looking at this golden clay and thinking it looks pretty easy to dig in,
you're right. Cut it with a fork. Cool

Well just holding the thing out there in the sun isn't the best way to get good pics
so this one will have to do.  Nice Find! Wink

WOW!!!

There's a big ol' construction site right down the road from me (Orange County-Durham County line), 100% dirt, not a single rock to be seen!  (unless you count the pavement that's been torn up...)

Over the last few months I have done some creek crawling in different parts of House Creek. Here is a picture of 3 examples. I found these on the same day within a 100 foot section of the creek. Needless to say I really excited.  Grin
Top and bottom shots are before and after cleanup.

Nice finds, Neal! Thanks for the pictures.
The middle one looks like some real high grade material.
What a gem of a resource that House Creek is. Always a good place to walk. Smiley

Thanks Joe. Since my microscope bit the dust I have struggled to take the pictures that show the beauty of what I find. The bottom crystal has a perfect hexagonal piece of what looks like mica embedded in the lower right third. I tried and tried to get a shot of it but the lenses I have don't do that job. Makes me think about how amazing an eye is.

Wow thanks for the show Scott.  They are all absolutely amazing!  And I am so glad to be here... Just been reading around it's so fascinating to see everyone's finds and hear their experienced advice.  Cheers all and Happy Holidays.

Happy Hunting as well!!

Had time to stop by the cemetery for a quick spot-check today to see if there were any wayward soul gems looking for a home.
And it was a fine idea, too. Took me all of five minutes to stumble across this one. Cheesy

Angry If you guys weren't so nice and I didn't like you guys so much....ARGH!!!!! Why can't we have crystals like that over here!  Angry

And that mica flower!!!? THAT is wonderful! Do you have more of that? Can we trade for some? I need to put those in the center of flowers. I haven't made any in three or four years now, but I am not finished with that idea and still have several to make. I still have some to give to people they were made for... Roll Eyes
