Samples from down under!
« on: April 01, 2015, 09:18:46 AM »
Hey guys!  I just wanted to pick your collective brains. The fam and I just got back from the land down under and I brought back these samples.
Our buddy took us on a drive about and we stopped at an old mine site. There was this amazing tailings pile that was closed off to the public but my aussie buddy said it has been abandoned for decades.  We snooped around and well we found this amazing blue rock everywhere....  The crystals were fibrous and well really neat. My daughter said it felt like feathers. We had a great day smashing these rocks up for the crystals. I took these pics when I came back to add them to my blog. http: //bit.ly/H72Dtu
Any idea what it might be?

Cheers - BJ.

Oh you got me!  I rushed to the bottom to post a warning and happily saw the other replies and confirmation.  That was the second one I fell for today.  My wife nailed me early this morning with a false crashing sound (bolts and glass in a container), crying out that she dropped her expensive camera.  I was able to pay her back by saying my daughter missed the school bus.  Oh what a fun day and so glad it is only once per year.
