Location Type: Private Property
Details: This is a fee-pay site that you can look for mica, feldspar, beryl, and uranium minerals during the day.  Additionally there are 150 other minerals including amethyst, garnet, and rose quartz.  Sounds great to me!  It seems like it is open in the middle of May until September or October.  For more up-to-date details go to their website:  http://www.rugglesmine.com/index.html
