A day at the feldspar diggings

A day at the feldspar diggings

Hello all,

Here's a picture of one of the local feldspar outcrops. The pink stripe
is the feldspar, surrounded by quartz. Double good! That's my friend
Dick Mackey digging some to take home to Alturas.

When the new little handmill gets here, I'll try crushing some of the
quartz too.
