    • Sorry, that is what you have seen in Michigan?
    • So far I’m at two crystal shaped inclusions that were softer than quartz? Only one hole all the way through.
    • Will it be sensitive to the wet weather when it is finished? 
    • I hope it won't warp too bad. I have each size bundled tightly with masking tape in several places. They are all laying on a flat table too...that's about the best I can do for now. Should be ok till fall and drier weather.    
    • I'm pretty sure that most of the Soap Creek area of Black Canyon City is under claim by now, but if anyone happens to be in that area and takes the jeep trail North after ascending the access road up the hill (I haven't been there in about 15 years), the " Spanish mine trail monuments" should be visible after passing Soap Creek. The "Indian Heads" are on the left and the "Poodles" are beyond the commercial? fenced off mining area straight ahead. The area may be accessible by jeep trails from the North as well. In '90's, during my first trip, the "Poodle" area had an open mine audit and a very deep, open vertical mine shaft with a small mine dump containing heavily stained/oxidized vuggy quartz. A nugget shooter using an SD200d was working a small drainage adjacent and down slope from the shaft. He introduced himself by his moniker as, "The Piano Man". He climbed out of the little gully he was in and showed me a few small nuggets he had pulled out in a couple of hours of detecting, and said he had to get home because his wife didn't like him being late for dinner!  He paused for a moment and said, "There's still one or two down there if you want to give it a try. I can hear them but I don't have time dig them up" He then jumped on his ATV and left. In another half hour it was almost dark. I drove off with two dinks in my pocket rolled up in a bandanna, thinking about the courtesy and friendly gesture of, "The Piano Man"  No, it wasn't Billy Joel.
