It was a lot of fun digging for the gems, probably more fun for me than Tom. I think he did the harder work, but it was such an exciting experience for me.
We also found feldspar, lepidolite, black tourmaline, green tourmaline, pink tourmaline, smoky quartz, lots of mica, snowy quartz, and probably a lot more that I just don't know how to identify yet. I think I may have to go back before summer ends.
