Why don't you lease the claim and continue to get something out of it, while keeping the flow going.  It would be a shame to loose that beautiful stone, especially with such a nice variety.

Not to give you a dilemma, but are you going to enjoy the rough or start to cut it.  There is some very interesting stones in what you have shown us.

We all love the green dot rough but it is very rare, in many years I have only seen three very small pieces.

Hi Joshua, I'm new to the forum and not from your side of the country so we never get any of this back here in N.C. But last year a friend in Idaho got ahold of about 100 pounds of "poppy Jasper" from a guy in California who inherited it from his father. I wasn't sure what it was until I saw your pics. I got a thirty pound piece of green with a wide swatch of poppies that looks almost exactly like your pics. Thanks for posting them,would love to have more! Karen
