My specimen processing area. It's all self collected and though I try to control myself, I always carry out more than should. Most everything you see is from MA., CT., or NH.

Here is more quartz, in situ, from the Little Falls dolostone. The pocket was not much larger than the crystal and packed with dirt. Less than a meter from the suface.
