A couple of my finds from this summer, a tube shaped piece filled with quartz and calcite and an ammonite with and without shortwave light

 

Both about 8"

Very attractive rocks Bob, I like them both. I'm not familiar with your second rock, but it certainly does respond nicely to the shortwave light. Hope you will post more of your summer finds over the winter months. I'll try to do the same with some of my rockhounding finds, probably later in the winter.

Really nice, Bob! From what I've seen in Wyoming, and Idaho, blue flourescence is fairly rare. That "tube" nodule is also a special find.

I appreciate that Bob. A couple people in particular advocated for this forum, and once it got set up have never posted to it. I will be more active on it personally this winter though.
