Lefty I presume you were at Mt Gibson.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

Yep, Mount Gibson. Helluva track in though - definate low range four wheel drive the whole way once you go through the gate.

Hi,
There is blue & green fluorite in that area as well .... might be some of that?  A quick specific gravity test would confirm it either way.
Regards, Paul

Could well be Paul - the blue and green bits are not in the recognizable four sided topaz Crystal shape. That might put paid to my plans to set it in a ring :P  fluOr it's is pretty soft isn't it?
