The Stickney's trip to Ace of Diamonds

(Herkimer Diamonds are a very high quality quartz crystal.)

We arrived Thursday September 2, 2010 at the Ace of Diamonds where set up camp at the mine. The first day we did not find much, so we asked the owner if he could fluff up the mine dumps. So that evening he spent an hour turning over the dump piles with his excavator. The next few days we had much better luck sifting through the dump piles for Herkimer Diamonds.
