That feeling when you hit a pocket, start  breaking up the rock around it to expose the crystals and hit another pocket. This photo was taken right after I hit a new pocket above my chlorite Included pocket below. ๐Ÿ’Žโ›

This piece cleaned up really nice, swipe to see it during the cleaning when I learned the bottom was all healed. ๐Ÿ’Žโ›

โ€œOrganizing Crystalsโ€ involves me working for a couple minutes, then seeing something nice and spending the next 20 minutes trying to get a good shot of it. Then I realize what Iโ€™ve done, get back to organizing crystals for a couple minutes. Then repeat. ๐Ÿ˜†โ›

Moved a big chunk of quartz vein and found some crystals behind it. Next I need to winch the boulder out of my way and try to expose and move the next piece. (Listen to audio for explaination). ๐Ÿ’Žโ›

Hereโ€™s a little clip from Saturdayโ€™s Dig. Decided to not dig today, my body isnโ€™t happy with the pace Iโ€™ve been working/digging at. Today will be my first day with no work or no dig in about 2 months. Feels weird, but my brain needs it. ๐Ÿ’Žโ›

Inspecting a vug with my phone, would be cool if this was just a smaller vent that leads to a larger pocket, gonna figure out on the next dig. ๐Ÿ’Žโ›

The most common question I get  from people wanting to get into rockhounding is โ€œWhere can I find spots to dig near me?โ€ My number one answer has always been, Join your local rock club and pickup your Gem Trails Books. For as many people that say things like โ€œI wish I could go diggingโ€ youโ€™d be surprised how many will stop at an obstacle like buying a book or attending a rock club meeting. ๐Ÿ’Žโ›
