One prospector recently recovered several diamonds in a gold pan (including one of 5 carats) from a creek in Colorado after reading this book (Hausel, 2014), and also found diamonds in another creek in North Carolina based on the authors work (Hausel, 1998). The diamonds were verified at the University of NC.
Other gemstones described in this book includes a potentially large opal, agate and jasper deposit that likely occurs east of Casper, Wyoming (remains unexplored). This, and many other gems, is described in the book that will likely lead to more headaches for the BLM (bureau of land management)- you know, those bureaucrats who are suppose to work for the public, but somehow lost their way. Readers who obtain copies of the book, will have a big lead in finding gemstones, minerals and gold! So, do you want to find diamonds, gold, rubies, sapphires, jasper?
|Look at this rounded cobble - how many of these have you walked|
over? This one is mostly serpentine, but is filled with excellent rounded gem
pyrope garnets and green chrome diopside. It likely has diamonds. We
found dozens of these south of Laramie Wyoming and north of Ft. Collins,
Colorado sitting on the ground. The rock is known as garnet peridotite.
(6) And still another (with his daughter), continues finding some of the highest quality labradorite and many fabulous pyropes, chromium diopsides, and peridots in southwestern Wyoming.
|Gemstones in the rough found in Colorado by the author. These include 'Cape Ruby' (pyrope garnet)|
spessartine garnet, almandine garnet, 'Cape Emerald' (chromian diopside), picroilmenite and chromite.
|Did you know that pink diamonds were described in the|
Colorado-Wyoming state line district - some pink diamonds
have sold for more than $1 million/carat according to the
Gemhunter, making them the most valuable commodity on
earth based on weight (photo of fancy colored diamonds

|Can you believe it - someone just found a gold nugget in California that sold for more|
than $400,000. Think there are some in Wyoming? Most likely.
|Chromian diopside with topaz cross. Yes, topaz was discovered|
in Colorado and beautiful chromian diopside was found at several
locations in Colorado and Wyoming and even in California. Other
deposits will likely be found in Montana and Kansas.

|Billions of carats of labradorite (spectrolite) are likely sitting along Highway 34 in the Laramie anorthosite complex|
in the Sybille Canyon area of the Laramie Mountains between Wheatland and Laramie. Yet, few are looking for the gem.
