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, crystal, and jewelry sales company that mines at several locations throughout the west, and has mined for several different gems and crystals. I contract through gem mining companies to do a variety of tasks including mining, mechanics, mine management, heavy machinery operation, mine development, and consultation and exploration.
I travel to several gem and mineral shows throughout California, Arizona, and Oregon.
I also sell all types of gems and minerals. My main focus is AMERICAN gemstones but I have a variety of gems from all over the world including aquamarine, tourmaline, sunstone, opal, moldavite, variscite, amathyst, quartz, chalcedony, ruby, saphire, and much more.
I have recently learned to facet gemstones, and I have started doing basic cutting for other people. I am still a novice so I do not work with high grade material, yet, but I can do basic cuts.
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.
