Rich Fretterd was there and we exchanged a few stories of adventure. He helped Veatch find the Red Elephant claim near Lake George where Veatch found museum-class amazonite and smoky quartz crystals a foot long and some just a few inches wide, some much wider. Rich and Veatch have been on many adventures for more than two decades. Now they are older than "who flung the chunk." Rich Frettered is one of the stars of the show and a legendary figure among the Rocky Mountain gem hunters. Rich will be sharing and working with the Pebble Pups.
