Natural El Dorado sapphire paydirt from Helena, Montana. This gravel is not mine-run, nothing has been washed out of the material, only the large rocks screened out. Pulled from the pay-layer, this paydirt runs rich in Montana sapphire with a chance at a gold flake or two! This “lottery ticket” packaged in a rustic wood box should put a smile on the face of the treasure-hunter in your life. Keep the sturdy wooden box to house your mining tools or other treasures afterwards.
Natural Montana sapphires are a form of corundum. They form in every color in Montana, though usually a pale blue or green. Heat-treating is an acceptable form of enhancement and will often turn a pale, cloudy stone into a clean, bright rich colored sapphire. Montana Sapphires in yellows, oranges, pinks and purples are also found but are more rare. Montana sapphires are a 9 on the MOHS hardness scale, making them ideal specimens for jewelry due to their durability.
The box is made of natural wood with metal hinges. The sapphire gravel comes in a burlap sack that is also reusable. Mining instructions and photo are included to help walk you through the mining process.
There is a little room in the box if you’d like to add on extra goodies – like tweezers, a scale or a loupe.
Outside dimensions are 10″ x 9″x 51/4″ and weighs approximately 13 pounds.
