Spring update

A single rhomb crystal with fine deep red color from a 1960 find in Idaho Springs. Similar to the better know localities of Sweet Home (Alma) and American tunnel (Silverton this came from an unidentified mine (likely the Moose mine or any of several Central city sites). The collectors were the Hitchings (father and son team) on a family trip from Massachusetts to Colorado. They collected 7 specimens from a boulder in a dump, this being the largest rhomb. They were not sure of the mine name and recorded these only as Idaho Springs.
