Those are beautiful! Awesome for Scufflin" Acres!
I had written the place off. I had no idea you could still find stuff like that!
Were you hand diggin? Looks like you had a vein?
That's really nice to see. Thanks for the pics!

Yea; at first I wasn't finding anything...then I decided to roll my sleeves up and knock down an area that looked virgin.  I dug into the side of that mound and created about a 6' x 6' hole and then I started hitting that blackish looking saprolite and the crystals.
