Ruby, Sapphire, Kyanite, Sillimanite and Iolite at Palmer Canyon Wyoming


After I discovered iolite at Palmer Canyon, I made more discoveries as well as a half-dozen ruby deposits and a couple of kyanite gemstone deposits. I was amazed by how many gemstones, diamond, and gold deposits that had been overlooked in Wyoming: I can guarantee using the exploration models I developed for these deposits, I would have found dozens (if not hundreds) more gem and gold deposits. But it was time to move on and I took early retirement.

But there are still some more gemstone deposits to find that I didn't get time to search for. As you think about rubies and sapphires - keep two rock types in mind while prospecting in Montana, Wyoming Colorado, and California - vermiculite and serpentinite!  These are very good host rocks for these gemstones. To find out more about these, I summarized the characteristics of ruby, sapphire and their host rocks in a couple of recent books.

  2. Most companies have a corrupt system where the hard workers are at the bottom and political power deserving or not is at the top. I wonder how many other deposits are there. I've been looking into prospecting areas over by green river Wyoming but all I've found is gold panning sites, I want to look for gemstones dang it! Perhaps I can get away with taking some mud from the bank and sift through it at home then return the mud to the bank but I don't know.

  5. Gemstones are really nature's wonder and they have a very positive effect both on health and life as well provided that the right gemstone for a person should be exactly identified based on his birth time, astrology & horoscope etc.
