On my first trip to Hickory Hill I was shown how to dig by a kind young man who had a hole right next to mine.  He demonstrated using spring steel wedges and sledge hammers, and I was able to find my first pockets in the super hard dolostone matrix. I found this one years later at the same locality, using the same techniques. It fetures a double terminated Herkimer diamond on matrix, with several vugs lined with smaller crystals. The crystal features sharp terminations at both ends and has some colorful rainbows inside.
