Some really cool stuff there. And you found these despite our wicked winter this year? Is this the famous Warwick find I've been hearing about? Thanks for sharing such great photos.

Yes, These are from the Amity (Warwick) find. The crystals came out of the ground last October, Most of them were covererd in snow but the snow is melting fast.
I have been finding some good fluorescent minerals and graphite dispite the weather.


This is the largest Meionite about 30 cm, Unfortunately it formed between two granite boulders and didn't have enough room, has some other crytsals coming out the side

I cleaned this piece today and found the best Titanite yet, razor sharp and about 4cm.
It goes through the Meionite and sticks out the back side.
