Day 371 (Gem Mining)

Last day of the road trip, which also happens to be my birthday! My family and I went to a tourmaline mine in Pala, CA to try to find some precious gems.

Here's my loot! The people there told me that the big pink one in the upper right is worth $40.00 to $50.00!

PICTURE OF tHE DAY: My dad found a really nice one, too! His is on the left. Raw like this, we were told it's worth about $100.00. If he gets it cut right, it could be worth over $700.00!!! Holy Moly!!!
