Lawrence County Rock and Mineral Show

June 26, 27 and 28 was the annual rock and mineral show hosted by the Lawrence County Rock Club.
 On the way to Bedford, Indiana, where the show was held, we passed through an area that has a lot of Amish.  Meg snapped this picture of someone turning into the Walmart parking lot.
There were 3 buildings full of mineral dealers set up at the Lawrence County Fair Grounds - lots and lots of pretty rocks.
 Some of the dealers we knew.  This is Kerry Jones who will be in Alaska at the same time that we are scheduled to install Meg's stone sculpture in Anchorage.
 There was an over-whelming choice of specimens, like this HUGE calcite group.
My favorite piece that I brought home was this sparkly, druzy quartz with hematite rosettes.  This came from Miss Betty's goat farm in Park Hills, MO.  From what I understand, Miss Betty is over 80 years old and she digs these things out of the ground herself.
