    I rewatch you etching videos all the time. I think it’s pretty cool how they clean up, especially this one. I wonder if a strong alkaline would do something to certain rocks?

    Wow!!! Nice rock man!

    WOW! I can’t wait to do this to some of my specimens. Thank you.

    Thank you. I really enjoy watching your videos. I am curious about what you do with the specimens and crystals you discover?

    Can you tell me anything about this 1961 Lin cent that actually look like

    That Specimen turned out really nice! The one thing I like about Tremolite is that Muriatic Acid doesn’t etch it. We’re heading out in the field again in a few weeks, hopefully we’ll cross paths again. 🙂

    Well rock hounds all wonder what’s inside the rock lol

    Hey, awesome video as always! Does the acid not harm the Tremolite crystals at all?
    I know you were up around Shadow Lake recently, awesome spot eh?!? Lisa is the best!!! What do you think about acid/iron out on those Tremolite crystals? Lisa seemed to imply that she had tried iron out on them and it seemed to damage the crystalline structure. would love to hear your thoughts, thanks!

    where is that from?

  12. Rock Crazy Gal on April 9, 2021 at 12:38 am

    Nice job! That acid really works well on calcite man!

  13. Joseph Mcleod on April 9, 2021 at 12:39 am

    Cool piece!! I know its not a how to vid but just thought I’d mention to do it outside!! I also like to soak the piece in a baking soda/water mix after to netralize any acid on the piece then rinse with distilled water.. Everyone has there own special way really!?? Keep goin if you have more, ya never know till you etch?

    I agree , I also really enjoy finding out what the rock specimen contains inside . I spend a lot of time breaking rocks open just to see what is hidden and perhaps find a gem or crystals. I think now I’m going to do some etching , the specimen you etched in this video ended up being a beautiful piece indeed . great video . And it was nice to see the baby bunny’s eyes open for the first time in your last video .

    Where did you find this one?

  18. terri Simmers on April 9, 2021 at 12:51 am

    This is so cool. I love the after the acid bath.

  19. chris brooks on April 9, 2021 at 12:54 am

    The before and after of soaking in acid are great! Always fun to see what is hidden in the calcite!

  20. James Gifford on April 9, 2021 at 12:54 am

    Love your videos

  21. lalamineful on April 9, 2021 at 12:58 am

    I love seeing what is inside rocks, it is so interesting.

    @meminer so i cheated a little bit and went and bought a piece of marble. To be fair i went to get a piece that had a few geodes in the bottom i saw a few weeks back. What i found made my whole year, check it out if you want and please let me know if it’s cheating to buy marble? Even if it’s 80% pegmatitic… Im extatic about it. And again as always, awesome cleanup sir, I’ve learned the most practical stuff from you that i use every day

  23. Terry Schrecongost on April 9, 2021 at 12:59 am

    Looking good.

    Recently I cleaned some Tremolite I found in the Bancroft area with Muriatic Acid to remove some large Calcite deposites. The first specimen was a greyish silvery Tremolite from an area off Gibson Rd and the second was some dark Green Tremolite from the Grace Lake area. The silvery stuff looks great after the acid bath however the green stuff seems to have a white film on it and the crystals dont sparkle how they did before. Is there a way to fix this? Or did I ruin my specimen?

  25. Mason Garner on April 9, 2021 at 1:02 am

    That is extraordinary! I am happy you found that calcite! A beautiful piece!

  26. GrumpyZoo Keeper on April 9, 2021 at 1:02 am

    I am reading up something about tremolite with asbestors concern recently, I have a few similiar looking rocks from Bancroft area, are these safe? thanks.

  27. jason ritzko on April 9, 2021 at 1:08 am
