I don't think you need to use distilled water. If you are going to use filtered water I would buy it from a water store which is filtered and a lot cheaper than bottled distilled water. I have no p ...

Thank you Bob. Just go up to the picture of the first Red Cloud in this string and that is the color of ours on quartz. I am curious why the color did not translate. It is even a bit muted on the R ...

I agree with Bob. There are a lot of manganese oxides in the Glove mine. There is even coronadoite coating and replacing the wulfenite.

These were collected in 1977. The miners found the pocket at 8:30am and I came to work at 4:00pm. Fortunately, there were a few left in the bottom of the pocket.

I have to apologize for the color. For some reason it did not translate through to this site. It is a very good Red Cloud red.

How about one from the Red Cloud? The association with quartz is uncommon. There were only a half dozen specimens from the pocket. All of the others were thumbnails.

I have one from there as well. Very attractive but not large. Back to Peter's description of the Spanish dealer's booth - that must have been quite a sight to experience. One has to wonder where th ...

The Spanish locality has to be near the top of anyone's list. I would add:

Penfield and Walworth Quarries, New York
Several English localities
Inner Mongolia
Cave-in-Rock/Rosiclare, Illinois, U ...
