Face it, after awareness of dimes develops, when we see crystals as ledges, our perspectives, have changed... we see stone differently than others do.. post your own views of stone that please the eye!

So, I know this isn't quite what the thread is on, but here's how I'm seeing stone these days.

I'm learning how to make cannons for use in my jewelry, and also to sell, and this is my 5th piece.

And this one was the 3rd I've made. This rock came out of a gold mine in La Pas County near where I'm at in Quartzsite. It's Chrysocolla and Culpite in Quartz.

You can really see the Sanidine in these photos [rectangular, colorless, glassy crystals]. Some amorphous glassy blobs of quartz, too. Fiamme in the form of collapsed lithic and pumice fragments.



I just found this recent paper on precise 40Ar/39Ar age dating of single Sanidine crystals in the Bishop Tuff (BT) by incremental heating, multi-collector mass spectrometry (IH MCMS) at 764.8 ka, shortly after the Matuyama to Brunhes magnetic polarity reversal.
https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/0347/459ec0dcc1aea7bc24254ffda9b3fef712b1.pdf

In this paper on Compositional Zoning of the Bishop Tuff,
https://academic.oup.com/petrology/article/48/5/951/1472295
they talk about the eruption taking place over a 6-day period. I'm curious what dating method that is based on that has diurnal temporal resolution. Imagine watching the eruption of the BT from the summit of Mt Dana...Mammoth Mt would probably have been too close for comfort.

EDIT: In this 1997 J. of Geology paper
https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/doi/10.1086/515937
Wilson & Hildreth describe using fall deposit chronometry (volcanic ash accumulation rates based on modern observed volcanic ash deposits), to estimate ~ 6 days for the BT deposition.

The new stratigraphic framework shows that much of the Bishop ignimbrite is intraplinian in nature, and that fall deposits and ignimbrite units previously inferred to be sequential are largely or wholly coeval.

Nice texture photos, Tradster. I’m guessing that the summit of Mt. Dana might have been a bit hostile during that week – spectacular views at the beginning of day 1, although probably quite temporary views. Thanks for the three more links. I read the abstracts and saved the two PDFs. Sure is nice to be able to store papers in PDF format on a computer, rather than in file boxes full of real paper. Reminds me of a story...

When I was in school at UNR, I was downstairs in the science library one day, photocopying papers from geology journals, and had a mishap. They often bind several journal issues into one binder/book, which makes it difficult to fully open the pages, to get a photocopy of an entire page. So, as we all have done, I was pushing down on the binder to flatten the pages as I was copying, and unfortunately didn’t realize how thin the glass on the photocopy machine was. : ) Well, next thing I know... SMASH!... there goes the glass. Oooops, sh#t, I thought. There was a girl/lady sitting over at a near table, who immediately looked up when she heard the semi-loud noise, with a look of WTF? on her face, but she didn’t say a word. I went upstairs to the front desk, and told the old guy there what had happened, who then had a look of disbelief on his face, but acknowledged that it can be difficult to copy pages when they bind so many issues together. I felt bad about it at the time, but get a good laugh out of it now. : ) LOL...


Mouse, do you see the sharp contact in your second El Cap photo, which can also be seen in your first photo? The right-facing corner in your first photo is the “rivet corner” on Tribal Rite – pitch 3. The topo in the SuperTopo book has this feature drawn more accurately than the topo in the Sloan book. The feature in your second photo obviously needs no explanation.

My interpretation is that this is cavity- and vesicle-filling analcime in basalt, collected in Black Rock Canyon near Yucca Valley, CA

Luv that White Pocket photo Mouse...has a surreal quality to it.

Flute casts at base of sandstone, Gooseberry Trail, Island in the Sky, Canyonlands, Utah. Not sure what formation this is. I think it is above the White Rim sandstone and below the Navajo Sandstone...

Was going through some old photos and found these. Probably posted them before, but don’t remember where/when.
