Collecting Zeolites in the Washington and the Great Pacific Northwest is a rewarding experience. From time to time prospecting in quarries that a person viewed as being a dead quarry has brought to my collection some beautiful mineral specimens.

Western Washington quarries are worth collecting in as many of them contain pillow basalts and vesicular basalts containing vugs with a variety of zeolite and calcite type of minerals.

For example, the best time collecting is with much sun and not too hot and just after a quarry has been blasted. Be super careful of the sidewalls and over hanging loose rock and material above which lurks out at you as a potential hazard.

Find an experience collector who can show you the hoops in collecting. Quarry collecting can be and is very dangerous and is limited many times from cell phone connections and emergency 911.

Thankyou and enjoy your future days in collecting rocks and minerals
