|Multi-colored jasper from Tin Cup, Wyoming|
|Jasper breccia, Tin Cup|
|Found this (the ruby not the quarter) in the Red Dwarf ruby deposit near Tin Cup, Wyoming. |
The ruby is surrounded by zoisite (the same mineral as Tanzanite).
|Ain't she pretty? A beautiful pigeon-blood reddish purple ruby collected from Red Dwarf near Tin Cup, Wyoming. The ruby is partially replaced by emerald green zoisite (aka Wyoming Tanzanite) and both are enclosed by fuchsite-chlorite schist.|
|Nice white sapphire from area west of Tin Cup in the Granite Mountains|
Wyoming. Always check to see what is inside a nodule.
|I found it! This prospect is filled with jasper. I was able to follow the jasperized vein on the surface for several hundred feet|
showing there is a very sizable resource of jasper sitting on the surface in this area. Some people asked me what the
Wyoming Geological Survey gave me for all of my discoveries - well they got the gold mine and I got the shaft. In 2004,
the new State Geologist stepped into office and soon the place was like a Appalachian Hillbilly agency with all
of his friends and even some relatives (and a couple of communists) hired to replace highly qualified people.
