Very nice flames!! You can feel the heat!!

I have a couple slabs I picked up in Quartzsite in 2015 from Tom McMahon that look just like the bottom one. Polishes beautifully but you may need to glue it up a little.  The ones I have are a little soft along the edges of the flames.

Killer stuff!!

As many places as I can make it to.

Sounds like you're going with the same plan I am... dancer5

This years wish list is pretty similar to last year. Heading for the Cady Mtns next weekend. Tried to go today and tomorrow but major storm passing through. I don't mind the rain, but it makes for some nasty flooding once in a while,

I'm going to try to do a McDermitt/Owyhee trip, and another trip to Texas with Teri Smith. I'd like to get farther south towards Falcon Lake, too. I'll probably crawl around Arizona some as well.

That Willow Creek looks like a very expensive piece of Japanese art.

Hi Jason

I've followed your posts for quit some time and seen your CJ posts before.  Just my opinion, but this might be the best yet. Awesome pattern and color!!!

Game of Stones was on last year here in San Diego, Ca, USA, so I don't know if this is a current page and it's returning or ???

Not a bad show to watch. The current Mine Hunters show is similar

Certainly looks Marfa-ish to me.  Just collected a couple months ago with Teri. Some of what I'm cutting looks like that. Don't see the different colored layered plumes in too many agate locations.
