Did you ever get around to sending my (your) meteorite?  Just asking.  I few a person a box and he hasn't gotten it yet so I know how that goes.  Paulette

Wow!  You have the equivalent of crazy lace on your BEACH!  I am impressed (I want to come see actually but that probably won't happen this year.)

If you poke it with a pin and it indents, it is probably gold.  The fact that you've had it for years and it hasn't tarnished also suggests gold.

Beautiful and lovely composition with the coin (no idea how big this coin is).

I like how rockhounds have house rocks and yard rocks and porch rocks and even rattling around in the car rocks.

Ah....this looks a lot like gold in quartz.  Mind saying where its from (you don't have to give away an EXACT location).

Subtle banding.  Would make a great eccentric cab.

Bamfield area -

My husband and I prowl logging roads.  We've pretty well driven all the back roads in our immediate area.  Recently we went to the Port Alberni area and bumped our way up and down spurs.  This is an area of basalt with few white quartz vugs, breccia (Dallasite) and banded chert that often is fractured.  This Saturday I whined that soon we'd be stuck indoors and so we drove the Bamfield road, taking side mains and spurs.  Not much was happening until we happened upon a black bear (watching us… Continue

Report on the north Vancouver Island trip in August

Terry and I headed north only after discovering that the usual places to stay were filled with engineers working on the Port Alice pulp mill.  We ended up in a "not suggested" older hotel in Port McNeil - the Dalewood which was clean and cool (windows opened) and had the best food in town.  We drove every day in a different direction, back roads map book in hand.    This book is both useful and not useful in equal parts.  The current logging companies have renamed (or unnamed) all the mains…

Collecting on Vancouver Island

First for the very good news.  Husband and I (Terry) are going north to the Port Hardy area of Vancouver Island.  We have been there several times both with a rock club and on our own.  I'm trying to find where the driveway material in Port Alice came from.  I was in Port Alice on business and when I stopped for gas I noted very interesting rocks in the drive way - mini geodes of calcite and marble.  I want to find some quarries or road cuts to look at! 

 

Now for the news…

I have cut some of the material I have collected (mainly common opal, drusy and agates).  Francois Lake (south of Burns Lake, B.C.) agate is quite attractive with pink, yellow, red and black and I have cut several of those.  Agates are quite plentiful in this area, if you know where to look but in some cases it can be hard work to dig them out of the host rock.  On the other hand in one area west of Quesnel, I have picked up a five gallon bucket full in ten or fifteen minutes right off the surface.   Some friends and I have also found some very large agates and jaspers - a couple have been in the 100-150 kg range.

I tend to cut mainly free form stones, particularly with opals, to conserve expensive raw materials.  However, if I need to set something in a commercial setting I will do calibrated stones as well.

I'm happy it finally went through!....As to the patch, just try not to use it to pull over too many speeders and such, although I know the temptation can be great sometimes...!...The amethyst is from Thunder Bay, and I tumbled it so it would stand out more than the natural appearance allowed. As to what I'm interested in, I would think I'd be happy with anything that you sent, so I'll leave it to your judgement...! Thanks for keeping me posted...!

...Seems a bit like overkill, but I guess you can never be too careful when you are a border guard...MAN, I might even be a little stumped on exact identification of a couple items that I sent, and would have to look them up....! One item is from up the street at a copper 'dig' and I sort of remember it being malachite/azurite, but it just looks like a regular stone with blue and green 'chalk marks' on it...The amethyst should be easy enough to identify-I sent tumbled pieces that are pretty clear.

Ohhhh nooo big deal on THIS end, I'm just hoping I threw together a selection of 'finds' that works for YOU...Yeah, I can SEE them getting caught up there-when the fellow at the border asked what I was bringing back and I told him 'rocks', he had to see for himself, and couldn't FATHOM the fascination at first.....!

I just love to hike and explore, drive around with a friend or two and enjoy the peace of the moment. I collect rocks and stories and experiences lol. We found this place by accident, snuck in and got chased out about and hour and a half later by a guard. we thought the place was abandoned as there was knowone around and it had a chain across the gate. I have know clue as to wher we were as I wasnt the one drivin. It was south of port hardy by about an hour. Vancouver isle is beautiful and full of wonder and intrigue :) It was windy here too today! nice to meet you Paulette, your my first friend here :}
