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: Private Property
Details: For details go to the Diamond Hill information page. There is a lot of good information there. You will need to be a small group or part of mineral club group to make reservations. Here is some minerals to collect: "Quartz (milky and translucent) crystal plates, Skeletal (complex crystal sides) quartz crystal plates, Amethyst crystals (uncommon), Smoky quartz crystals (more abundant than Amethyst). Recent micro-mineral finds: Cacoxinite (bright yellow to golden radiating fibrous masses), and Silver (native and argentite) (rare). Also, pseudomorphs of calcite and pyrite."
Here is what you would bring: "If you want to explore the dump piles, bring a scratching tool (like rake or hoe) and a probe (like a big screwdriver) to pry pieces out of the dirt/clay. If you want to work in the native veins, you can bring a pick and shovel, prybar, rock hammer and chisels. Bring your lunch, plenty of fluids, sunscreen, a hat, gloves, sturdy boots, newspaper for wrapping crystals, and buckets/boxes for carrying crystals. Bring rubber boots and a change of clothes if the ground is wet or there is a good chance of rain."
Directions: For directions go to the Diamond Hill information page.
