Awesome quartzs from Arizona I did not know. Thanks a lot, Am, for sharing here. For me, thousands of miles far from USA and with very little chance to attend American shows it is a luck this initiative exists.

Regards.

Something that tends to get overlooked - Palygorskite with Calcite from Morenci! I found large sheets of it at Ray, as well, but no longer have that collection. Not real pretty, but interesting!!!
