About Quartzsite, one has only to wander around and see the vast
number of 55 Gal. drums filled to the brim with rocks and minerals of
all types to realize with patience and perseverance treasures await.
Many of these drums have not been high-graded at all. I can give you
two examples I know for certain have made some very happy and
increased their finances.
Chatoyant Malachite, an exquisite material. This is not culled before
having the material cabbed or slabbed. Spend some time going through
the bins of lower priced cabs and you may well find chatoyancy.
Granted poorly cut cabs, nothing wrong with redoing those and either
using or reselling them.
Enhydros, ditto the drums of quartz crystals are not carefully
examined before filling, it is fun to see the surreptitious moving of
these crystals to find some and immediately seeing a 10 fold increase
in your reselling price.
Just a couple of reasons to wander around and search, yes it does
take time, and I will be looking for the chatoyant material for my own
personal use, I love it and would never sell it. Mine, all mine…
