Picture of the Day - Cali Blue Mine Rough Cleaned Up

Here is the cleaned up and gleaned out rough from the California Blue Mine which I shared HERE a couple of days ago fresh out of the grab bag in its dirty and unfiltered form. This material has been cleaned up here and the dirt and smaller stones discarded. Those aquamarines look almost emeralds. The smoky quartz at the top right actually has needles of black tourmaline running through it. I thank the folks who gave this material to me at the Nipomo Gem & Mineral Show last year.
