Digging for vials and incendiary devices

Last Fall, the family unit had a great road trip out to the Great Salt Plains to dig for these great little hourglass selenite crystals - unique in all the known world to the great state of Oklahoma.

Truly great [sincerity]

Vials of nastiness and things to blow them up with were recently unearthed in the salty mud by a Boy Scout digger, and now the national park may be shut down to crystal diggers for good.

Just great [sarcasm]

C's first words when we told her that we may not ever be able to dig for crystals -- that in fact no one will, were..."Does that mean the ones we found are going to be worth a lot of money?Sure I laughed, but then it got me thinking along that vein....
