There will be a blast while we are on site at Noon. We must leave the quarry during this event. We will return once it is safe. There will not be collecting on the blast (normally a blast is very dusty and crystals hard to see anyway). They will be actively excavating the blast once it is safe anyway. Collecting is in stacked boulders on quarry floor; always lots to find there. We may stay till 3 or 4PM.

Expect to find sphalerite, fluorite, marcastite, galena, dolomite, selenite and calcite.
