Re: Re: Rock with numerous crystals, unknown origin
Adelaide (love your name, BTW),
I should have explained that we have lived in all of those places over the course of my lifetime. Dad resides in NC now and probably won't step a foot elsewhere. I will, however, press the issue with him and see if he can recollect from where it came.
FYI - Here is a list of the places where we did, in fact, acquire many beautiful specimens of rocks, in the three states to which you referred:
VA - Richmond area, James River, and Pocahontas State Forest
DE - Newark area; we used to bottle dig for bottles and explore the DuPont property, at the Levere's Labs, which I believe we're in Newark...could have been Wimington...I'll confirm
MD - Dad was born and raised in Severna Park and would explore the tidal channels and inlets regularly; also the Chesapeake shores, in both MD and VA, were frequented by my family while living in PA, DE, and VA
If you're ever in Hendersonville, TN, there is a big lake and an island in the middle. We called it fossil island because we found an economy size coffee can full of fossils on it. There were also some beautiful stones. I'll get specifics from him on that, as well.
Thanks for your response/input!!!
