20 acre Gem Blue Chalcedony deposit Mining Claim central NV near Austin Gemstone
This is the real deal, a top notch gemstone / gem mining claim that you can own and dig and cut/polish beautiful rare blue chalcedony gems from, make jewelry, and polish and sell the specimens! This is a gem and lapidary material that has grown in popularity and increased in value over the years. It is NOT the cheap stuff from overseas, this is the top gem grade material from right here in the USA! The claim is barely scratched and you will see this when you go to the claim. This is for 100% full ownership of the mining claim totaling 20.66 acres, 1500 x 600 ft Lode claim on federal land, central Nevada Gem quality Blue Chalcedony, also known as Mt Airy Blue Agate, west of Austin NV. This was the original discovery of the blue chalcedony in the region. It was held by Larry Everitt and Chris Rose (High Desert Gems) until the Everitt's moved away from the area several years ago and the claim was not kept up and became forfeited. To the best of my knowledge, Chris Rose still has a couple of claims over the hill to the south. This claim was named after the original discoverers wife and I kept that name when it was relocated for the history and provenance, but the new owner could re-name it if desired. This mining claim is assigned. BLM MLRS Serial number #. Access is by a dirt road 1.33 km uphill from highway to top of a hill. Then you have to hike or ATV downhill to the dig spot on the claim about 1400 feet away. This keeps it secluded and deters claimjumpers and highgraders from easily digging & stealing from the deposit. The Chalcedony occurs in thundereggs from an inch to over several feet in size, within a zone of easy to dig ash. There is also a zone of the blue agate and thundereggs in the hard indurated rock on the west side of the diggings. The pit is easy to dig. I dug for less than an hour and filled up over a 5 gal bucket of good pieces with gem grade. This is an important deposit that you can say is ALL NATURAL COLOR and MINED IN AMERICA, and ethically sourced location and material! Better blue color and saturation than the prized Ellensburg Blue Agate from Washington. See the CLICKABLE LINKS BELOW for more info and details. I have more photos and video on my website too!
