Boise, ID and Graveyard Point, Oregon Second week in August
Hey all! I am headed to Boise in the second week in August for 5 days and wondered what your favorite spot is over in that neck of the woods?
I will be going to Graveyard Point or Succor Creek one of the days over there and I wanted to hear your stories. I think we are going to head out there with Pebbleup ( you rock BTW).
I may head up into the hills above Boise for some aquamarine, have any of you been to the location near Centerville, ID, Creek hunting I hear.
Anyone want to meetup or give me some hunting tips? You all re awesome!

Lost TREASURE found!!!!
Talk about lost treasure - how about finding the two largest colored gemstone deposits on earth. A new book describes the Grizzly Creek iolite - ruby -sapphire -kyanite deposit with gemstones that weight as much as a million carats in the rock outcrop, and the Sherman Mountain iolite deposit with >1 trillion carats! and the Cedar Rim opal deposit with giant opals up to 100,000 carats near US287!
Just came across a new book on Booksurge (and Amazon) which describes some fabulous gem localities including opals >100,000 carats, iolite >1 million carats and more. I followed up on a couple of localities and I have a few thousand peridots, garnets and emeralds. HIGHLY recommended - Gems, Minerals & Rocks – A Guide for Rock Hounds, Prospectors & Collectors
The book even describes ways to use the internet to find diamond deposits.
