found a purty rock

14 April 2014 - 05:54 PM

   THe wife and I  were out last weekend ,12ish miles  NNW of Rich HIll,AZ  and found a purty rock :4chsmu1: about 4 "x7"  and couple inches thick.  Found others of interest but not as purty.. BRought back 200 pounds or so of 'em.   Lots of large  feldspar phenocrysts or  porphyroblasts :brows: . to throw out some bit words I found on WIKI.

 

- one side  of it is faced with quartz crystal  that looks like it was hit with some secondary hydrothermal erosion/depostion that's amber/brownish.  Sortof melted  the crystals down a bit so  the  terminations are few .

 

Below the crystals (moving outward from the pocket) colors range the gamut with some purply redish black  eye candy.

 

 VInegar didn't do squat,next thing I had  around to try was "metal prep"( phosphoric acid.) 

 

 It's been in that for a day and not a bubble from the surface/ hint of reaction or change surface coloration or shape..

 

 CLR is next and I guess I have to charge up my camera battery and learn how to download a pic or two :idunno: 

 

 Mike's seen a purty rock or two out there,,,..

United States to Ban Raw Meat Sales, Following Joint Agency Decision  
April 01, 2014 
 

By Dr. Mercola

Based on past conditioning, the latest developments in the US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) fight to provide Americans with the safest foods possible may not come as such a great surprise.

What started as a ban on raw milk to protect consumer health quickly escalated when the federal health authorities realized just how deadly and polluted Americanmeats are. After all, raw meat, whether beef, pork, or poultry, is actually responsible for a vast majority of food-borne illnesses. 

For example, virtually every E. coli infection can be traced back to the unsanitary conditions in which food-producing animals are being raised, processed, transported, stored, and ultimately sold for human consumption.

As a result, the FDA and US Department of Agriculture (USDA) will be joining forces to assure "undisputable safety" of all meats sold to Americans. And the only feasible way to assure pathogen-free meats, the agencies claim, is to ban raw meat sales. The joint agency agenda is reportedly slated to take effect as early as next year, at which point all meats sold within the US will be pre-cooked.(  bigg schnipp)"

Teen Faces Felony Charges For Possessing Tackle Box
OCTOBER 7, 2013 BY BREAKING NEWS 6 COMMENTS
Man-Fishing-Old-SC-300x237.jpgPublic school policies designed to keep weapons off campus have expanded so grotesquely students are now being punished for the most innocuous reasons imaginable. For example, 17-year-old Cody Chitwood could face a 10-year prison term and $10,000 in fines for keeping a tackle box in his car.

Although some of the contents could, like almost anything, be used as a weapon, the prospective U.S. airman didn’t bring any of the fishing supplies with him from his vehicle. Chitwood, a senior at Cobb County High School in Georgia, is simply a fishing enthusiast.

In decades past, it might have been unusual to see a rural high school senior without a tackle box in his car. Today’s irrational leftists now consider such behavior a felony.

Police found the box of lures during a random vehicle sweep recently, during which they were able to secure a search warrant and ultimately tear through Chitwood’s car. He cooperated with authorities, turning himself in and only being released after securing $1,000 bond.

In quite the understatement, Chitwood called the ordeal “pretty ridiculous,” saying he just wants to resolve the issue “so I can still get in the Air Force.”

He has been forced to hire an attorney to combat a frivolous charge that could quite literally ruin his future. Such is the nature of the ‘no-tolerance’ beast; when authorities are not permitted the latitude to use common sense, innocent people face the consequences.

Teenagers should not be expected to anticipate what might or might not be considered a weapon on any given day. Even more importantly, if a child guesses wrong one day by packing his fishing pole, he should not be labeled a felon.
