What a beautiful Pyromorphite from the San Francisco mine! I don't recall ever seeing one like this. Nice piece and thanks for sharing.

Hey there. We are stuck in Dallas with a huge ice storm and travel is impossible. Waiting for things to melt and dry up...

Thanks Jordi. We finally left mid day on Saturday and ran through slush and saw lots of wrecked vehicles. It was a tough few days of icy roads. We drove for 15 hours and arrived in Tucson at mountain time 12:30 am. We unpacked and managed to get to bed at 3:00 am!

We so enjoyed looking at everything. The whole of Tucson is down on attendance. So many couldn’t make it.

Went into Wendell minerals next. Jim was in our room on a conference call.
