Mark, I've given pieces to a half dozen museums and a few are on display at the New York Museum in Albany. I have more than I need and might try and trade some stuff.

I found this giant 3-3/4 inch spinel today. Its sitting next to a bigger one but its more crude. These giants made Amity famous over 150 years ago and they are still here.
