    I HATE being hot, glad I live in Montana! LoL! However, I would suffer the heat just for a little while in order to find stuff like you have been! Great stuff!

    The heat is awful, makes you literally sick if you're out in it for to long. Montana has great weather right now, how goes the hunting ZIM, what ya got planned for your next hunt?

    Thanks, yeah I dug it up last time I was out, I actually didn't notice how special it was at first, I find a decent amount of fire agate chalcedony with druzy quartz out there but this is the first one I found with fire right under the druzy, I had it sitting in the specimens bucket, usually I pressure wash everything when I get home and separate what looks like lapidary material from specimens, this particular specimen I kept moving to the side never noticing the play of colors because I kept the bucket inside never looking at it in good lighting thinking it was just a pretty druzy specimen.

    Steve, was this float or did you knock it out of a pocket ? Have you tumbled any of your lesser pieces yet ? If so... show some tumbled stuff !

    This was a floater but I do chisel out vugs or fire agate strait from the igneous rock on cloudy cooler days, there's some really nice pockets I need to get out one day but it's a lot of work and you have to be careful not to break the agate doing it, I'll tackle them next winter. I still haven't gotten around to tumbling anything yet, the problem with my fire agate is either its attached to host rock or it has druzy crystals on them, I'm going to have to pick out some good one's and use a dremel to remove host or crystals first before tossing them into the tumbler.
