Shaft 10 April 9, 2011, pictures below by: Chris Wayne


Saturday, April 9 started out as a rather nippy morning as a group of about a dozen members met about 8am at the McDonalds in Belchertown to spend the day at Shaft 10 in Hardwick, MA.

The parade of seven vehicles arrived at the site about 45 minutes later and under sunny skies, walked the access road to the picturesque collecting site.

All attending found specimens that they were please with. Babingtonite, garnet, fluorite, epidote and apophylite were most commonly the specimens found, while scouring the surface of the steep hillside or scraping and digging.
