Gem Mining – Take IV

I returned to Lucky Lake last weekend to pick up the cut amethyst. As a reminder, this was the before, in raw form.

This is the after.

 And of course couldn’t resist digging into another small bucket!

Picked up a lot of what I already had, more palm sized sodalite, another amethyst, and citrine. I did manage to get some obsidian and dalmatian jasper! They were little tiny pieces, but something new nonetheless.

Smokey Quartz. The guy said these were the best kinds to have cut, better than the more clear ones.

The way back to Richmond.
