You are invited to a three day dig and rock swap at Georgia's premiere mineral location: Graves Mountain in Lincolnton, Ga. Don't miss this opportunity to collect here because the rutile, lazulite and pyrophyllite are said to be some of the finest in the world.

The collecting area at Graves is huge! There are three main rock types: quartz-sericite schist, sericite-kyanite-quartz rock (quartzite) and quartz conglomerate. You may still be able to collect rutile, kyanite, lazulite, iridescent hematite, pyrophyllite, pyrite, illmenite, muscovite, fuchsite, barite, sulfur, blue quartz and quartz crystals with a hematite coating. Don't forget the micro phosphate and phosphosulfate minerals that can be collected here. Look for woodhouseite, variscite, strengite, phosphosiderite, cacoxenite, crandallite along with accessory quartz, pyrite, pyrophylite, dickite, jarosite and sulfur crystals.

Join us for a weekend of fun and adventure!
