Hello John,

I'm glad that you made it out safely.

All's well that ends well.

Thanks for the interesting story.

Don

Hello everyone,
This is long overdue, but here is what I consider to be my best piece from the H-Jct dig in May. It's a citrine crystal at about 6 cm in height. It really interesting because of its slightly sceptered and incipient skeletal growth and it's beautiful with its 360 degree completeness and it absolute flawless transparent interior. I'm hoping for a purple one this coming year!

It was great to dig with you all and I hope I'm there with you again in 2015.

Regards,
Ian Merkel
