Not sure if any saw the news about the big theft at Graves Mountain a few months back...well, they solved the case and got some of the specimens back.
What the news report doesn't say, is the kid who took them, his name is Emanuel Stan from Georgia, and he wouldn't face any charges if the items were returned...however, I found out that many of the specimens were damaged and some of the most valuable wasn't returned at all. We're talking $44,500 in high-end specimens. Rutile crystals worth more than a new car!
Here is the news report that came out a couple days ago.
