    HI Guys,

    Herb Y. visited Greenland, in 2004, and has a neat photo journal of the fluorescent rock collecting trip. Check it out at:

    Thinking that melting snow is feeding the blossums but also exposing some new rock!

    Dennis, I love it when this thread resurfaces. Thanks. It also makes me wish I'd paid more attention out in the oilpatch and in the Sunnyside Gold Mine in Silverton, Co. when I was working in those places.

    Not Bad Dennis, thanks for sharing.

    I'm a rock hound from way back but never collected any fluorescent specimens. It's been a few years but I used to spend a good bit of time pawing through old feldspar mines, pegmatites mostly, in western Maine. A lot of tourmaline of various colors, garnets and beryl, amethyst, a wee bit (very wee bit) of gold from the Swift river, etc. I started with my Mom's collection which she put together as a young woman in Arizona and California.

    I'll have to make a point of getting out this year and doing some scrambling. My lifestyle over the past 8-10 years hasn't really been conducive to rock hounding. I used to head out with a 5 gallon pail strapped to an old back pack frame and a bag of hammers in my hand, then struggle back down the mountain with a hundred pounds of rocks on my back. Dunno if I could pull off that trick now [img]smile.gif[/img]
