Took the kids out rock hounding today, looking for zeolites, quartz crystals, Amethyst, and found some citrine too. The new Westside road interchange off highway 97 in West Kelowna has blasted out some of Mount Boucherie's basalt revealing many fresh vugs full of all sorts of Silicates. Some quite exciting.

There aren't many videos or much information about this topic on the Internet. ... so I figured I would share! This was our first time ever going hounding for crystals, and we came out of it with a HUGE stockpile of beautiful blue Celestite!!!

The Texas Queen Mine, located in the Vulture Mining district, just outside of Wickenburg, Arizona, is reported to be a fluorine/fluorite mine. Upon inspection, our surveyors disputed this fact, siting that the waste dumps and general trends of the area had no indications of fluorite. There was much oxidized iron in the waste dumps and there were two main shafts instead of only one shaft, as historically reported.

In this episode of the Ultimate Arkansas Crystal Digging Guide, I go to the Twin Creek Quartz Crystal Mine to excavate my own private premium crystal pocket. Join me as I find plenty of clear crystal points, many clusters and a few rare Phantom Quartz Crystals. Twin Creek Mine is located in Montgomery County near Mount Ida, Arkansas. This area is known to be one of the best quartz crystal deposits in the world. It is part of the largest singular deposit of quartz on this planet, stretching all the way from Oklahoma to East of Little Rock. Some of the best quality clear crystals can be self-collected around Hot Springs National Park and Mount Ida. After a short drive thru the Ouachita National Forest, you will reach this rock hounding site. After arrival and check-in, the mine host or mine owner Bobby Fecho will show you the private dig site for the day. You can collect as many stones and crystals as you would like for a certain fee. The allotted digging time at the actual mine is approx. 7 hours. Be there at opening time to get the full time. Make sure to make a reservation for digging a private premium pocket at the mine (No reservations needed for the regular public dig site at Twin Creek Mine). (Filmed in July 2017) This peculiar crystal mine is known for many Specialty Master Crystal Formations such as Lemurian Quartz, Manifestation crystals, Double Terminated crystals and more.

Lost Mine, Secret Fluorite Vein, Colorado Springs, Colorado (Part 1) The Blackfoot Native known as Doug showed me a secret vein of Fluorite in the mountains west of Colorado Springs, and we began exploring the area to see all it has to offer. Though this Fluorite has little value as is we plan to use it in art and sculpting, as well as jewelry. Watch as we uncover some great pieces and have a blast doing it! Remember, "Together we hunt, and tell stories by firelight!"

www.minecristal.ca Stay informed about our new videos: subscribe to our YouTube channel "Mine Cristal". This mine is located in Bonsecours, Quebec, Canada. Photos and video clips shown here date from 1989 - 2012. The open-pit mine produces splendid quartz crystals with exceptional clarity. The largest single crystals measure 60 cm (24 inches) in length. Since mining began in 1989, 32 types, or morphologies of quartz crystals have been catalogued. Geological research into the origins of these crystals has revealed that they formed at this location some 300 million years ago under extreme conditions of heat and pressure. We harvest crystals in the mine only as needed, to supply our store with a sufficient quantity of quartz crystals. Exceptionally (for a mine), we harvest all the crystals by hand and without the use of dynamite. It is a privilege for us to participate in the discovery and extraction of these true gems of nature. The extraction process is done in a manner which respects both the environment and the crystals: we endeavor to keep the crystals whole and in a pristine state. In the museum and the store, our crystals are presented in an untouched, natural state. Amazingly, each crystal is an intricate work of art made by Nature; no two are alike and this makes them even more fascinating! Mine Cristal is considered by experts to be a “geological gem,” one of Canada’s great natural sites, due to it’s unique and abundant mineralogical deposits.
