This gorgeous crystal specimen is perfect for Christmas! It has red rhodochrosite crystals on a green matrix (green pyrite?), with pale lavender fluorite cyrstals that look like little snowdrifts. From Steve’s Pocket, Fluorite Raise, Sweet Home Mine, Alma, Colorado.
I am leaving Miami to live in Greensboro, NC. Any good rock hunting sites close ?
Yes, there is kyanite near there. The Greensboro club goes to a lot of great mines, http://www.ggmc-rockhounds.com/trips/ MAGMA (Mountain Area Gem and Mineral Association) is also really helpful: http://www.ashevilleguidebook.com/wnc/outdoor-recreation/rock_hounding.htm
