We found this sample while looking for the magnetite around the iron
mines west of Cedar City along Desert mounds road. The sample shows a
quartz crystal that is encrusted with siderite. There are also larger
crystals that are very well defined showing the crystal shape very well.
The above 2 pictures are from the iron
mines near Cedar City.
The listed coordinates at the top of
the page will get you close, just look for the tailings.
The above 2 pictures are samples from the Skylark mine NW of Milford,
UT. The coordinates are for that mine. We highly recommend having
4-Wheel drive due to the soft sand we encountered.
As always, be sure to obey any "No Trespassing" signs. Things may have
changed since we were there, mines get re-opened, new owners, etc.
Respect private property.
