Graveyard Point Mining Operation Update

   Gene and his crew are having a great adventure in Oregon mining Graveyard Point Plume Agate.  They have unearthed a large vein of agate, which has been producing some great material.  You can see from the one picture how deep they have to go to get some of this agate.  The plume agate has been displaying beautiful yellow, red, and orange plumes.  They have had plenty of company as the Boise Rock Club and others have come out to check out the activity and pick up some agate.  Gene will be wrapping up digging this weekend, but anyone is welcome to go out to the claim, with the proper permission forms( available below in the May 3rd blog post).  A full mining report and new material will be available in late June.  Keep an eye on the website and Facebook for announcements.  In the meantime check out some of the Graveyard Point Plume Agate that you can get now on our website.
