Finally, after too much searching I find my first Aquamarine:
Upper left of picture. And, at the same location:
Gemmy garnet (?) with green crystal growth. Sorry for the photo quality, phone doesn't zoom so good.
SO far this summer, new discoveries, new locations: Aquamarine, herkimer diamonds (double terminated quartz crystals), black tourmaline, mystery green crystals and a whole pile of other rocks I'll need to get ID'd once the Chamber of mines reopens. This could be the best summer yet, and I'm still waiting for the snow to go on the peaks...

Mostly nonsense. I mean, I'm away, then I'm catching up. News, Trump, USA, Canada, UK, The World, NZ, Australia, Sweden, Covidiot type shit.
Reddit. The Daily Grail. Digg. Boing-Boing. Refresh. Again. And again. And the news is always worse.
In other media, catching up on the world of inane TV. Watched: "Don't f**k with Cats". Meh. "The Hurricane Heist" - D-Movie on Netflix, which I loved because it was like a weatherman (picture Steve Carell) on the weather channel decided he wasn't getting enough respect and decided to write his own action movie. With him as the star...
I dunno. I needed a break from the news.
Episode 1 from "Upload" on Amazon Prime. OK, but it annoyed me because I had thought of all this easily 10 years ago - by which I mean, the digital afterworld, the idea of ads, subscription, tech support, etc. And it annoys me that someone else realized it. But it makes me recognize - when an ideas time has come, if you don't realize it first you're last. And so I'm watching it to see how someone else has realized "my" ideas.
"Vivarium" - interesting concept, not so thoroughly developed. Liked, but "so-so". Some good ideas.
Finished watching "Ozark" season 3. Nope. No good news there. And I really, really, didn't care.
And, finally, "The Good Place". I like the tidbits of philosophy, but it's all too dumbed down. Episodic, as if each episode was written only after the previous one had aired. Reminds me of "The Magic Tavern" in it's improv/didn't make a plan/let's just wing it approach. I'd give it a miss. But - on the plus side - I didn't want to kill myself afterwards...
