In September 2014, miners at Tasmania's Adelaide Mine finally reached the end of the fabled River Run pocket, which had been worked since 2012.  This piece came from work done toward the end of the run, and shows that the quality continued to run very high right to the finish.  This cabinet size specimens consists of a knob of matrix with several vugs that are filled with fine crystals which are square in cross section; many are terminated, as well.  The luster is good, and the color is a bit redder and less orange-red than many specimens from the Adelaide.  No one knows what will come next for this venerable locality, but we are all rooting for Adam Wright to continue his run of good luck.
