This website or the contributor can't guarantee the information here to be accurate or to be up-to-date, although that is the intention for the data. Illegal activity or property damage is not the responsibility of this website, but each visitor is encouraged to review the Rockhound Code of Ethics. Each website visitor is advised also to consider reference sources listed and outside sources in their research before visiting the location.
Location Type: Public Access
Details: This is land governed by BLM (Bureau of Land Management - government). Information about this location can be found at the BLM's Black Hills information page. Further instruction can be found at the Travel Channel's Treasure Wiki Arizona Page. Fire agate and chalcedony can be found here.
Directions: Black Hills rockhound area is located on the north side of Arizona route 191, between Safford and Clifton, about 18 miles north of Safford. Follow the dirt road about 2 miles to the heart of the collecting area. By looking at Google Earth, I'm thinking 18 miles north is actually more of a eastern direction, and the dirt road might be Old Safford Road.
