We had another fun trip to the Six S's Farm. We had a small turnout for the MAGMA club, about 25-30 members each day. We had originally planned to bring in a big machine the week before to stir things up, but the bad weather made that impossible. We decided to go ahead with the trip since we plan these trips around when the chickens are out of the chicken houses.

Double terminated crystal. Most of the crystals found the first day were small compared to what we usually find at this site.
