Nov 9th, 2019 Greenwater FR72 Field Trip Report

On Sat. Nov 9th we went up to the Greenwater FR72 area and visited 3 sites.  It was a wet day, but 8 of us made the best of it, finding black agate and opal at the 1st site, green stone (chert?) some with red veins at the 2nd site, and red jasper at the 3rd site.  Because of the variety of material here, I prefer this area over the Government Meadows opal pits and will probably add this area to the field trip schedule for next June or July. The black agate and red jasper polish up nicely.
