    Spent Tuesday morning at Fairy Stone Park for a quick little stone hunt.
    Had a ball, bringing the grandkids back asap.

    Yes, 1 in 10,000 they tell me. I got one that I believe could be cleaned up and filed it to one.

    There is a place in northern New Mexico that I hunted years ago. They are great stones. The place was beautiful! I bet it was nice to get out and find some nice specimens! Your grandkids should love it!!

    I haven't seen one of these or even thought about them for years. I worked at Skyline Caverns, as a guide, in high school. They sold them in the gift shop there.

    Great post and good luck!

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    When I was born, my father was a ranger for Fairystone State Park. Born in Stuart hospital yes, but a very very dim memory of living in a Quonset hut then. And I ended up back here just a short few miles down the road from the park. Life is good and this is a very beautiful area.

    Small world! I'm from Virginia and was just in Northern New Mexico this summer where my kids and I scraped up a handful of those stones. Beautiful canyon we were in!!
