Here are the specimens from the California Blue Mine from our recent mining projects. This is the first time we have been able to offer so many matrix specimens!!

Below the CA Blue specimens are some specimens from the Reward Mine: A couple of years ago, I was introduced to this Gold, Silver, Copper and Lead mine in Inyo County, California. Over time, I have collected a number of very interesting specimens and after having some XRD work done to confirm and indentify some species, they are now ready to be shown!

RW - 1008

Caledonite

$600.00

5.9 x 2.9 x 2.5cm
Reward Mine, Inyo County, California

This was a very interesting specimen. When I found it, there was a nice coverage on the top, as you can see in the first photo, but there was a small vug going in at a 90 degree angle from the top. So when I got it hoe, I trimmed it so the vug would open up and the crystals in the vug are much better than the ones on top! The other side of the specimen sold for $2500.00!!
