Wrentham Quarry trip 9/29/12
By: Teresa Greenwood

Three years ago we collected with some heavy rain and lots of muddy puddles.  Last year was a banner year with weather and collecting.  This year, it rained the day before and drizzled some as we drove to the quarry.  But the day turned out to be OK with only cloudy conditions.  We did have some muddy conditions but not too bad.  With our hosts' guidance to rock piles. everybody found something they were pleased with.  There were a few amethyst crystals along with lots of pieces of amethyst.  There were quartz and chalcedony finds also.  I found a piece of blue rock, which is a mystery.  The color is pretty and the rock is interesting.  Some of the twenty participants left around noon, but others stayed 'til one pm.  Teresa
