    I second that.
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    of course that's all to be taken from a gal who's a newbie rockhounder.

    Re: another blue rock

    Chrysocolla is a basic copper silacate that isa secondary mineral that often has an opal like appearance.
    It is associated with azurite, malachite and limonite.
    Some of the finest specimens in the world have come from Arizona copper mines.
    The mines at Bisbee, Globe, Cochise Co, Gila, and the Clifton Morenci district all produced this mineral.

    Vibes,
    Some minerals are fluorescent, while the same mineral from a different location isn't.
    Basically fluorescence is a location thing.
    some minerals flouresse yellow from here and orange from there

    catch as catch can.

    yep, yep , yep-- again it's a location thing

    I still wonder if the rocks I found in New Mexico florescence? (I have yet to purchase the proper UV light)

    But, but, but...

    i do not recommend anyone taking them to the tanning bed...wrong UV light, trust me on that one.

    Re: another blue rock

    yep Old Dog, you called it!

    I was up in the Sandia Mountains (ABQ, New Mexico) rock hounding. I was following a creek bed when I spotted 2 bright blue and one red item(s). My heart started pounding as I thoght I found turquoise...how lucky was I?! I sprinted over to the 'goods'...picked them up to discover they were jelly beans. Someone has a mean sense of humor.
