I don't get out much with the detector in the summer months. In fact, I haven't dug a hole since Memorial Day. But I found something else to occupy my time until the fall season.

A friend turned me on to a spot along some railroad tracks where you can find these crystals. I am told the yellow ones are Citrine, and the deep purple ones are Amathyst. There is also a lot of white Quartz.

Here are my better ones from yesterday. Spent about 1.5 hours before it got too hot.

I have been filling these bottles with them. I have also been filling small bottles with the little pieces and giving them to friends.

Here the better ones I have collected over the last few weeks, minus those I have given to people.
All as of 7-15-22.jpg

Thanks for looking folks :thumbsup:

Steve I have tracks in the back of my property line. Are these found in one spot or are you walking a bit?
Very interesting
