Location Type: Public Access
Details: The Travel Channel Treasure Wiki says that in Gem County you can find opals of salmon pink or cherry color, with agates of light blue color are near the deposits. For more information go the Travel Channel Treasure Wiki page on Idaho (link is above).
Directions: Go to the Travel Channel Treasure Wiki page on Idaho again for directions. It is a little vague. I think it must imply that the deposit you are looking for is at Squaw Butte. However they did provide GPS coordinates, so maybe it will point to the right spot.
GPS Coordinates (lat,long): (441'58"N, 11624'40"W)
or (44.032777, -116.411111)
