The awesome Blue Sheppard! If you ever get the opportunity to visit this mine, hop on it.
Every step you take n the trail to the mine is filled with lepidolite, occasionally sprinkled with pink tourmaline.

Sounds great Barbra. I can't watch the video though, it's just white-out for some reason. I can hear the guy talking and tapping away at the wall. Might be this system, will try again from home.

Let me know Lefty if you have any further problems. I'm pretty good at fixing stuff.

Youtube occasionally gives me this problem. Restarting the browser usually fixes it.

I've been to the Himalaya mine once, and bought their pegmatite bags a couple of times. The results were pretty darned impressive, I must say. Lots of pink and green tourmaline.

Ok, this slightly better computer shows the video perfectly, except that there is no sound because it has no speakers. I'll watch it at home.

Some good close-ups like this are helpful, if I see rocks that look like these ones when I'm out prospecting I'll be stopping for a closer look.
