Breaking news for the Jackson's Crossroads pay to dig amethyst hole in Wilkes County , Georgia , updated December 17, 2004 .    Recent work
at jxr has resulted in conditions ideal for coming out and collecting those luscious gemmy bright amethyst crystals , both loose in the soil and in
the numerous big boulders laying about . Pictured below is Carl Rogers and I , working on some pockets   last weekend .  While most folks are not
allowed in the actual holes , good material has been brought up to the surface . Look for more cool pictures to be posted very soon.  I have
added a lot of new content  --- including a jxr video clip --- to my other website , so be sure to check it out :   the
video is on the jxr page . My tucson dates are listed on the hiddenite page .
