A Bit of History -- In the 1870's, many miners settled and worked in Hidalgo County, but it was isolated and made it difficult to transport ore out. With the completion of the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1880. precious metals could be shipped economically from the county, mainly silver. In 1893, silver prices dropped sharply and the exploration for other metals began.

This gemstone was self-collected, cut and polished by me in my Benson, Arizona lapidary and jewelry making studio.
