2 weeks ago where I took my local California Quartz on a roadtrip, here we are taking in the views near Mount Charleston, Nevada while on the hunt for some old Bristlecone trees to enjoy. ๐Ÿ’Žโ›

Hereโ€™s my favorite piece of Northern California Jasper I found when I used to purely rockhound before crystals. ๐Ÿ’Žโ›

Found a new zone this week and snagged this piece while prospecting around, hopefully this winter Iโ€™ll be able to track down the source, itโ€™s close but still hidden. ๐Ÿคซโ›

When I find this many surface finds in one small area itโ€™s a sign that I should start digging to try to find the source. Always fun finding a buncha points in a new zone like this. ๐Ÿ’Žโ›

Sweet lil ground score. Sometimes they are just on the surface waiting to be collected. I prefer pockets but you wonโ€™t hear me complaining while finding these lil guys. ๐Ÿ’Žโ›

Thereโ€™s something cool about traveling to far remote areas  hunting for quartz and randomly finding miner trash left from an early prospector many many years ago. ๐Ÿ’Žโ›

The perks of not being able to call it quits and digging till dark. Finding random crystals in the night on the hike out I night have missed if it wasnโ€™t lit up by my headlamp.  Had a great day today, didnโ€™t find anything insane but I gained a ton of insight into a new zone of Californiaโ€™s geology. Learning more about local geologic occurrences is probably my favorite brain food... ๐Ÿ’Žโ›

Last week diggin for fluorite. That sphere-looking plate at the end ended up being my nicest piece. ๐Ÿ’Žโ›
