Lovely vivid colors. Do you find brighter colors on the surface after a wildfire, a kind of natural heat-treating?

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!

Wow, what a great combo of colors, had no idea this material produced that range of colors.  I also like that healed black fracture which makes for a nice aesthetic.  This easily makes the top 10 list for me.

We found this vien about 2 1/2’ down, I don’t think it was hot enough as it was by the edge of the burn, but I guess it’s possible. The fire basically cleared the brush, either way there is more deeper down...
