        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 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.
