The fluorite room in the Hull Mine, Castle Dome, Arizona


Since we could tell that the Hull Mine was not only safe but also well ventilated, we went exploring. In one room we found piles of fluorite. In this picture George is taking a close look at the top of the old ladders that were left in the fluorite room. But the best pieces seemed to be already on the ground. They weren't the very best specimens so we grabbed a bucket of them and left. The Hull Mine didn't turn out to be that productive but that night, right near the mine entrance, we found what we were looking for. The numerous mine dumps above ground had lots of beautiful red calcite with blue fluorite.

Continue to night collecting under the full moon.
