My Dig





I had found a pegmatite here last fall and found a couple crystals with it.  Today I dug it up and found quite a few quartz crystals, quartz and microcline plates as well as albite covering much of the material.  None of the material was exceptional, though I did get a few nice microclines out of the pocket.  The dig pictured above is pretty much done.  A few 10cm crystals were pulled, but they all are coated with an exterior film which is of course not desirable.
