Om föremålet

, , Rock and Bob operated a claim that Bob had figured out  covered by surrounding claims. (Clever, Bob was! Oops!) They took out some 13 pockets and spent months, and years, cleaning them up like street urchins headed for dancing school. The Amazonite is very fine but it is the Smoky Quartz that makes the piece. It was hard to find specimens that weren't trashed when the pockets collapsed. That's why Bob hung onto this one - he only kept specimens that he personally self-collected. Since he doesn't need it now, and neither does Rock, it's up for auction - a one-of-a-kind trophy from a couple of die-hard field collectors who were lifelong friends. As Rock stated, this specimen has been repaired and restored, just as many (if not most) of the region's Amazonite and Smoky Quartz specimens usually are.Collected by Bob Bartsch, Ex.
