Nestled in the pines, this scenic collecting destination boasts lovely quartz crystals and incredible views.
This site is highly recommended by Stan Vance and Jerry Wells of the Fresno Gem & Mineral Society, with many fond tales of collecting here.
Found in the crumbling granite of this site, which was mined for radio grade quartz crystals, the crystals range from plentiful smaller sizes, to rare multi-pound giants.
Keep posted for more details!
