From Steve Behling of the Collector's Edge:
Rob's Pocket was found in August 1997 Hedgehog Pocket was found in Sept '96 Pockets were less than 50 feet apart ... similar mineral assemblage ... Rhodo, Quartz, Huebnerite ... as a general rule, Rob's Pocket pieces have a little stronger red color and often better luster than the Hedgehog.
