Rockhounding the Electric Hill Country of San Antonio & Austin ⚡️Texas⚡️

  • Published on Nov 1, 2020
  • I’m on another speculative journey through the middle of Texas, at the Southern elbow of where I think massive dielectric discharge surged through the Lone Star State, during a celestial event in antiquity.
    Using my autodidactic knowledge and charged ⚡️eyeballs, I trek through the woods in search of electrical evidence and pretty rocks.

    keep in mind that the tops of rocks were not always the tops of rocks. dendritic patterns can occur whilst on the underside via erosion. not to detract from your quest though as you are on the right path.

    At 6:50, that looks like concrete poured around a post in the ground with rocks surrounding the hole. Then, the whole thing was dug up, the pole removed, and it's left sitting on the ground.

    As kids earlier we used to chip fish 'petrified' out of an shale like substance on the coast . . from the cliffs of the northern beachs Avalon NSW . . perfect examples of perch like fish petrified in abundance . . an Peter Mungo Jupp . . bolt out of the blue

    Hello! I’m going to the marble falls/ austin area at the end of the month for my birthday. Any suggestions on rockhounding or fossil locations? I really appreciate it, my first time coming out there to look :) Thanks!!

      Happy Birthday. I know every inch of Burnet County. I live in Marble’.
      Only thing of value I found around Marble Falls, were arrowheads. West side of town is granite,and entirely off limits due to the Granite Mountain Quarry, if u see a large dome of Granite. It and all the minerals around it. Belong souly to Granite Mountain Quarry, and all the limestone, and fossils within, in the areas east of town belong to Huber Quarry. For cool stuff you gotta go to Burnet, Buchanan, and Llano. 95% of Texas is private land, and nowadays. Everyone has trail cameras. At Long’s Fishing Camp in Kingsland Texas. 13 miles west of Marble on 1431 West. They also allow public digging. Check out Eagle Rock if visiting Long’s. There is also land owners off highway 29 South between Buchanan and Llano that allow tourist to pan gold dust.

    I think that small 'volcano' thing is man made . . but there were places on the north coast of Oz . . where you would see them actual in groups . . they were ancient large mud lobster holes as in they built up an cone ( like a submarine conning tower to get above the tides) . . petrified after an comet bolt (my theory) . . we used to collect smaller petrified specimens of those mud lobsters at certain beach locations after storms . . they were petrified & not 'fossilised' . . as they were frozen in life . . when turned to stone . . we had those petrified lobster 'home' cones . . as garden ornaments , as well as the rock lobsters themselves . . back in day up there

    You need to make a video of the Lano River and picking through the sediment for gold. It’s there I know this for a fact. And it’s near Kingsland at the slab. Locals should be able to direct you to it. While most swim and play in the water some are there getting the goods.

    Sorry for mistaken the amber honey calcite for yellow calcite! Looks like you found some cool stuff though. I’ll have to make a video showing the spot I found with all the fragments of crystals, it was everywhere in the dirt sucks you didn’t find it! I have a bunch of the crystals cleaned up that I’ll be sure to include in the vid. That Celestine was amazing I had no clue that stuff was just on top of the dirt! Thanks for the knowledge you had to offer about some of the stuff that is around my neighborhood over here in San Antonio!

      @Electric Universe Eyes woah! I don’t remember seeing that part of the video! That’s pretty cool a nice piece you found. I’ll upload a video today of the stuff I’ve found, I’ll let you know when it’s uploaded. I know I said that the other day lol but foreal this time! I went out behind my apartment complex which is right behind a active mine and I didn’t really find much, I got so close I heard voices but didn’t dare to go closer! There’s a dry river bed also behind my apartment that I checked out but didn’t come up on anything, besides a cool piece of drift wood😎 for what? Idk. Lmfao. I really enjoy your videos of you exploring around especially cause you explore places close to me. Keep them up!

    pro tip, do not take anything from a public park. it is law for most states,.not sure texas, and illegal in NPS. but despite me seeming rude, I like your vid

    Stone Oak Park! I live about 5 minutes from there. I find a lot of calcite there.

      Heck yeah! I really liked that park. I should go back, now that it's not freezing outside!

    Honestly I like the idea of the video but I HATE that you do not own a stabilizer cause when you walk around your video makes me dizzy. But other then that I like your video
