Nice druzy there fossil.  Yellows, blues, and purples, nice color variety.  I may have many of my pics on this notebook, i'll have to look around and will post them if i can find them.  I have heard stories of back when they let people in to collect on weekends or nights.  I remember that there was an incident or two where someone took out tons and tons at a time and the mines management was not happy and closed it down totally to collecting.  Its really sad when a site closes down and there is still stone left.

I found some of my pics on my notebook, so here are a couple.  There are 2 slabs and 2 pics of each.  The one piece is half deep purple Tiffany and half multicolored from tans to oranges with a bit of druzy.  The is one really weird piece.  There is a normal shot and a closeup where you can see the line that delineates the two types of stone.  The other piece is also a half and half stone with a distinct line between the different halves. The one half is purples to grays with the other half cremes to white with some agate and druzy.  I'll look and see what else i can find.

Here's a few more.  First a pastel piece with almost orb patterns in places.  Then there is a piece that is half normal Tiffany and then half that is a bluish agate type stone.  I have a full view and a close up.  The last one is a very richly colored piece with colors from red, creme, purple, black, and white.
