Isinglass Mountain – Elevation 1739 ft – all by car. (July 15th)

To continue our summits without walking tour of NH for GroovyCousin, we decided to do some mineral collecting at Ruggles Mine in Grafton County.  Following a leisurely drive to the summit of Isinglass Mountain, we made our way into the 200 year old open pit mica, quartz and beryl mine.  We each walked away with a bucket of mica, feldspar and quartz and a piece or two of aquamarine.  After the few hours of collecting, we made our way back out of the mine and the mini-cheeseburger were distributed and luckily I had packed 4 extras, as GroovyGirl ate them all before we got to the car – about 200 yards away.  I guess rock collecting takes it out of little kids.
