Gorgeous stone!
After that long dry summer... it seems we're getting weather in unusually distinct seasons this year. Hopefully it'll reveal good rock and leave your orchard alone this time around.

I rock hunt in the Antelope/Ashwood area of the John Day river basin in Oregon. 90% of what I post is from this area, from private property where I have permission to hike and collect. The material I find is for personal use only, I do not have landowner permission to sell. Thanks for understanding!

    Is that Jadeite or just really interesting Nephrite.  If you have any extra or ends I would be interested in a trade for any Jade with interesting patterns.  neal

Oregon has nice beach rocks!    /  Washington BETTER south of Westport, Go west on Chehalis  road. to water, At this point in November i filled two fives with some of the best beach rock of my LIFE.   Clear quarts, jade  E-all of the above plus too much more.

    The walk was  close to a wall of sand 15 ft high slope too water loose gravels in all directions.

  Best surface collecting EVERY. Of over 25 yrs. ago.
