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. 

WTG :smile:

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.

      I bought another Michigan copper nugget the other day.      I love this kind of stuff.      This one goes 235 grams.  7½ ounces feels really nice in your hand

      Know your Rocks.
      This highly desired collectors piece was found by one of my customers with a Fisher Gold Bug-2.
      If you did not know what to look for you'd probably toss the rock aside thinking "just another iron stone hot rock".  When you see a good variety of colors and minerals, its time to slow down.
      Here is a 1 of a kind tree shape gold specimen or Dagger.
      Thanks to my customers for sharing your photos of Success with me.

      Hi guys,
      got a question with octahedral gold, I have been trying to get a clear picture of how this is formed.
      Can someone explain how this is formed, I have looked this up but cant get a clear picture of makeup.
      I realized recently that I have found a octohedral piece of gold from a recent hunt, pretty small but nice.
      it is around 1/16 of an inch. Anyone with info on this I would appreciate it. Thanks Rick

      A California woman says she found a 1½ carat diamond while mining gold near the Sierra Nevada foothills town of Foresthill.
      “I was like ‘Oh, my god, I found a diamond,’  ” said Jillian Kelly.
      Kelly, 49, left her Silicon Valley career to take up mining 10 years ago and wrote ‘The Miracle Miner: My Life as a Female Gold Miner.” The uncut semi-clear pebble-sized stone is about width of a dainty pinky finger.

      Found a copper ore nodule scanning some mine tailings in n Nevada, 94 on the Deus and very heavy. XRF readings at the local pawn shop were; Fe 1.53%, Zn 27.37%, Sn .632%, Cu 67.68%, Pb 2.37%. Sure wish there was a little Au in there, next time I wish. Or, could this just be a melted fitting buried in the tailing pile way in the desert high on the side of a hill?
