 As you describe the cancer, I would assume that doctors are telling her to get her house in order?

 

?  

 

Prayers sent.

 

FWIW

#240938 Claim Maintenance Fee Increase

Posted by weaver hillbille on 08 July 2014 - 12:27 PM

The "Small Miner's Waiver" still is in effect for claim holders with less than 10 claims ...

Must learn  "hoop jumpin, I guess. I can't find that smilie :barnie: 

"MAINTENANCE FEE PAYMENT WAIVER CERTIFICATION (aka SMALL MINERS EXEMPTION)--If a claimant owns 10 or fewer active claims/sites on federal lands in the United States, he may qualify for a maintenance fee payment waiver. Waivers must be filed or postmarked (if mailed) on or before September 1 for the subsequent assessment year. There is no fee to file a waiver. A waiver must be filed prior to each year a waiver of the fees is desired."

Posted by weaver hillbille on 18 June 2014 - 10:48 AM

 Last time I was in,I was asked," In the last month have you felt hopeless/desperate or felt  anxious like you had no control over the world around you?"( or something to that effect).

 

 I said," Yes, right before I came here."

#239601 Blasting rock,...

  Ironic that your "made up" word actually relates.  Maybe you  were a miner in a former life :idunno:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mundic

...............................................................................

"Mundic once[2] referred to Pyrite,[3] but has now adopted the wider meaning of concrete deterioration caused by oxidisation of pyrites within the aggregate (usually originating from mine waste). The action of water and oxygen on pyrite forms sulphate (a salt of sulphiric acid), thereby depleting the pyrite, causing loss of adhesion and physical expansion"




#238922 Couple Self Collected AZ Specimens

Posted by weaver hillbille on 05 June 2014 - 04:19 AM

  THat's what I thought- you don't have to break open a geode to call purple quartz ,'amethyst'.  

 

Read that the purple is iron but I think it's lockedinto the crystal itself( turning it purple) instead of superficial staining that can  result in  a variety of shades from yellow to brown( so I have read).

 

:idunno:  I also found that cattle plop makes a great fake iron stain.(( I think that's what it is).  That ,and tractor hydraulic fluid or oil.

Great collection for sure, thanks for posting the pictures. What exactly is the clay like stuff you hold the specimens with?

WH... That amethyst certainly looks like a plate from a geode.......but, a quartz vug can also produce amethyst

 You have no idea what you're talking about :old:  That's Golden Blurstone :4chsmu1:

It's a blurstone  :brows:, sorry I could resist, the photo is too blurry for me to try and attempt an ID, especially since I'm only a novice at IDing rocks.

#228525 Cool metallic mineral ???

Posted by weaver hillbille on 30 January 2014 - 06:34 PM

  Was it on the surface or did you dig it up?  the easy  neophyte guess is  Amethyst - based crudely on color only.

 

  CAn   you buff out the color on one of the small crystals?  Maybe run it across some wetordry sandpaper or a scratch stone for a streak test?
