    People do that that stuff seriously, just like the gold prospectors sites they have all over. Sounds like you had a good time.
    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

    i couldnt remember what they told me it was so i looked it up and it is called planerite and coeruleolactite which is a form of eastern type turquoise and very common in several eastern states arkansas being one of them. this is not a gem grade crystal it is mineral grade and not much value to it like western turquoise is

    just got the end of the story channel 13 but appears someone found a 2.5 carrot diamond up there looks like you should have taken the warden and dropped her off ben this last weekend that puppy would pay for many millwood trips
    Give me a sense of humor, Lord;
    Give me the grace to see a joke,
    To get some humor out of life,
    And pass it on to other folk.
    Amen!

    I've been there too ... no diamonds ...

    They say it's best to go there after a strong rain, which peals away the top layer of dirt, and also to look in the lower areas as they tend to congregate there.
