Was going to go digging yesterday but my knees were hurtin so took a hike on some BLM land and found this beauty (nice yellow calcite, very common but never quite seen one like this) think someone else collected it and dropped it by accident. As I reached down to pick it up I noticed a small green round thing baking in soon-to-be summer sun and turned out to be a 1980 mexican coin (I was in middle of NOWHERE). Kinda quickie post thanks for lookin'.
