Hey Crowmofo76,

Not only are you sitting on an historic artifact rich area but your geologic examples are interesting too. I always liked the quartz and we have plenty of the white/clear stuff around here. Yours show nice mixtures. ..Question- Did you or an elder knap that point yourselves? (The camera flash makes it hard to determine age but it looks great and I bet its sharp.) :cool: Thanks.

I like that Wilson ash tray! Advertising items like that are the main thing I'm looking for when I come across newer dumps. Be careful anywhere you're finding newer ampules and injection bottles though, that'll mean there may be needles and other medical waste buried alongside them.

I am simply amazed at how much has sat buried in the ground since 74 and is in remarkably good shape....like these dentures

I wish I knew more about the rocks minerals fossils gemstones that we have out here on this property it was a quarry before it was landfill and it was a landfill from 1910 till 1974 here is a picture with no flash

Hey Crowmofo76,
You have a quite the variety here. Looks like part of an ancient seabed with all those fossils. (Cha-ching$.) [Also, yes, the 6 pics with a little red in them are rose quartz. All very natural.] --I was wondering if the arrow point was your creation or found (minus the feathers.) ..Its a great piece of land you have there and should supplement your art and purse alike. Good luck with it and donate the dentures.

Where do I go to chaching$? The arrow head is a clay fake I made
