Hit the hills lately as we propel towards the approaching winter. This was in an interesting quartz blowout, covered in mud, at least three feet deep. It looked like a normal muddy rock, but it didn't have the flatter-side look like much of the other stuff I was pulling out, so I brought it home. When I'm in question or curious, I take it home...
I have only washed it with a toothbrush and water. Thought I'd document the out-of-the-ground look; when I get it sparkly clean, I'll post again for a comparison. Going to start with a Super Iron Out bath and go from there.
Couple-inch micro-quartz cluster plate. Experimenting with a new macro photography technique. Taking a bunch of photos with tripod manually focusing across the rock. This was 8 photos focused in multiple locations merged in Photoshop. Neat feature for macro shots!
