We didn’t find any large crystals. This area has been well picked over. The US Fish & Wildlife Service has banned use of any tools or digging for collecting, so we can only pick up the leftovers on the surface. It’s very mesmerizing to hike around on the hill, eyes glued to the ground, looking for the sparkle that will yield up a treasure!
