Description: Mike Sanders wrapping specimens as Chris Cowan hands them out. The second day collecting (April 10, 2014), we found a large pocket that took two full weeks to dig. The pocket produced 80 flats of material that consisted of medium-to-dark purple octahedrons with bright green cores sitting on plates of blue-gray cubic fluorite. The color contrast on many of the specimens was outstanding. I will upload many specimens to show the variety of specimens produced from this one pocket.
