00C-FVQCovellite, Malachite, Pyrite, Quartz (Var: Milky Quartz), Chalcocite

Multiple photos available
Silver Bow Co., Montana, USA

Dimensions: 8.2 cm x 4.3 cm x 3.5 cm

At first i was looking at the wrong tag for this mineral example,The purple in the covellite is just amazeing the photo's just don't do it.So many different minerals in such a small area makes it really attractive. The milky quartz is the canvas.And the other minerals are the oil paints. No damage to any of the covellite blades.The actual tag that goes along with this mineral reads covellite w/ pyrite,Silver Bow county,Montana.I guess grandma didnt have room for the rest of the info on the tag.This is from an old collection that has been boxed away since 1975 until recently. overall size is 8.2 x 4.3 x 3.5 cm.Gordon c De'Young collection.

X17-F0UChalcopyrite

Illinois River Mining District, Josephine Co., Oregon, USA

Dimensions: 1.8 cm x 1.8 cm x 1.2 cm

A rare find for this locality this was found saturday November 22,2008 I and two of my sons went on a nice fall walk out in the illinois river area about a mile or two away from eight mile a well known swimming area to the locals here.I was walking along side a small creek that leads into the illinois.I was walking through black berries and other bushes i wasnt on a path.All of a sudden i noticed this shine coming from the creeks edge i thought it might be fools gold after closer observation i noticed it was a nice size rock with a copper tone as well as green and maybe some quartz.I cant see this rock being dropped by someone so i would say it came right out of that creek.overall size is 1.8 x 1.8 x1.2 cm.

Multiple photos available
Mount Adams area, Mount Adams, Yakima Co., Washington, USA

Dimensions: 34 cm x 12.5 cm x 5 cm

I found this myself,near mount Adams "Adams creek meadows" during the summer of 2006. i was out looking for petrified wood with a few friends i came along this branch in tact and it measured 7 feet.But as it would go once we tried to move it snap! It's actually solid quartz even the remaining brown bark, it looks like bark but it's actually quartz also. I cut this so that it would look like a piece of fire wood,when ever i hand it to any one they can't believe how heavy it is being 9 1/2 pounds.Please look at all the photograph's top,then three of the top and one of the bottom,end tip shot.look at the knot isnt that crazy ive never scene petrified wood like this entire branch, I also cut a few 8 x 8 chunks from the tree itself.overall size 34 x 12.5 x 5 cm or 13 5/8 x 5 x 1 7/8.Gordon c De'Young collection
