Recently I took a trachoe and worked for two straight days. I rolled over all the old
tailings piles , and moved all the piles in the back that had the dark black amethyst. Then
, I dug up lots of new material. Collecting conditions are incredible at this time ! please
call REDACTED to set up a visit . The absolute most fun you'll ever have for $25 !
One of the nicest characteristics of the jxr amethyst crystals is that the outer surfaces
and faces of the crystals are very bright and shiney , revealing high clarity gemmy
material within . C'mon up to real pleasure at Jackson' Crossroads ! Websites have
proliferated with pictures and pages of jxr material . For instance , try Google , or your
favorite search engine, to search for " jackson's crossroads amethyst " ( without the " " )
. You'll find pages in France , Italy , Germany and more--- usuaully the first page of
results lead to pages on the dixie U website , but page 2 of the results will lead you all
over the world. I saw that the Mineralogical record and Wright's rock shop have recently
added references .

Amethyst is "plentiful" at jxr on the surface ( well , slightly under the surface ) .
Recently a fellow visited jxr for the first time and spent only a day there . Since this
fellow was a fairly strong man , willing to work , well equipped with the proper tools , and
experianced in how to break rock and hunt for gems , he did what folks of that
description generally do. Amethyst is not "scarce " at jxr , but I have to give a
disclaimer that it is not just laying about , ready to be raked into a collecting bucket . I
don't want out-of-shape folks , with no tools , no experiance , and who are not willing to
dig , to unreasonably expect to make out like a bandit . BREAKING NEWS : see Mickey
