Just visited the Lafayette Funk collection in central Illinois.  Wow!  Definitely worth a visit.

Calcite crystals at Rucks Pit.
Do a Google image search for "Rucks Pit" if you want to see examples of what you will find there.
28320 Northeast 55th Avenue, Okeechobee, FL 34972

I am probably going to stop by over Thanksgiving.
PM me if you want to try to meet up.

We have some good specimens in the Tellus museum here in GA and the videos on Youtube make it appear that leaving with lots of good specimens is the norm.  Probably one of the best known public dig spots in FL.

Beautiful stuff Jeremy.  You definitely hit IMHO one of the best spots for agate in Georgia.  I am so happy you had a good experience!

I also received my 6 inch sintered and a set of belts from Hans in about a week.  Good stuff so far...
