Apache Tears we found near Superior

Recommended Posts

We went to a place Russ (Kermit) told us about to look for Apache Tears today. I've never been able to find any Apache Tears before; I guess I didn't know what I was looking for. But Russ was right, there were Apache Tears all over the place, and I started finding them on the ground as soon as we parked the Jeeps. We walked a short distance where we dug out Apache Tears we saw peeking out of the walls of a minor cave. We found several golf-ball size ones, a bunch of thumb print size, and a whole lot of smaller ones. What a fun day!!

Yeah, that's what's coolest about them. A bunch of the ones I found are already shiny on the outside, others have white splotches and some look like they had brown dirt on the outside. But they are all translucent like that. Neat rocks.

 

Hadn't thought about renting tumbler space...

Those look amazing all polished up. Can you PM me the location? My daughter loves collecting rocks and I would love gathering some with her.

 

Thx, Kurt T.

AWESOME!! Let me know when you are heading back!! And yes, we can use one of my 3 rock tumblers. They need to be in a tumbler by themselves, with a different kind of medium, so they don't fracture...

Sorry I missed this trip!!

smiles, ladybug
