SEARCHING THE EARTH FOR THE ULTIMATE NATURAL EXPERIENCE
I mine in several random locations throughout the West including: variscite and turquoise in Nevada, quartz in California, high grade lepidolite in southern California, and agate and jasper in Arizona and Nevada.
Vagabond mining is a gem mining company committed to bringing the beauty and amazement of gems and minerals to the collectors of the world. I contract through gem mining companies to do a variety of tasks including gem mining, mechanics, mine management, heavy machinery operation, mine development, and consultation and exploration.
I travel to several gem mining areas throughout the U.S. With a focus on the western states I also sell all types of gems and minerals. My main focus is AMERICAN gem mining but I have a variety of gems from all over the world including aquamarine, tourmaline, sunstone, opal, moldavite, variscite, amathyst, quartz, chalcedony, ruby, Sapphire, and much more.
I enjoy doing some faceting and lapidary work.
I have spent a lot of time mining Gem Labradorite in Southern Oregon. Gem Labradorite also known as Oregon Sunstone comes in many colors including: clear, schiller, pink , orange, green, red, and the super rare blue.
