Also know as Wingate Pass this material is from the China Lake Military Reserve in California. This material was last dug in the 1960s and collecting is no longer allowed on the site making it quite rare and in real big demand. I guess if you want to RUN>>DUCK>>and COVER, you could pick up some Death valley float "shrapnel" scattered around the area!>> I was so surprised to find this amazing slab at a yard/rock collection sale. It was late in the day and there was not much pickings left and I was about to leave and I heard a guy ask the lady if she'd give him back his money because his wife was mad at him for buying it. lol This slab was not like the more common Wingate I also have listed. It's a stunning example of some of the best Wingate Pass you'll ever find. I went back to find out if the lady knew where that slab came from and she said probably one that her late grandfather collected from his rock days. She had a pile of rocks from the yard sale that did not sell and can you believe that the same rock the slab was cut from was in that pile and when I showed the lady she knew she had a winner in her hands. The slab was priced $25 in his collection but the big chunk had no price on it and she had no idea it was the chunk from the slab. I made her a good deal and now it's part of our stock until it's gone to some rock loving homies. -(3"x 2"/1 oz./3mm) excellent collector piece > no fractures
