Finding Your Fortune In Montana – What Is Gem Mountain?
Prospecting across Montana has brought many a person a personal fortune, or even perhaps ruined a personal fortune or two, but it remains a major part of the history of our state. It continues in some capacity around the area, even pretty close to Great Falls, MT. For a weekend of fun, heading to Gem Mountain can create a awesome memory, whether you are from here or just traveling through.
Montana Yogo Sapphires - The Gemstone Of Royalty
In Montana, the sapphires we find are typically cornflower blue, but there are several variations of them. The name for these sapphires is also different depending on where they were located. Montana Yogo sapphires are in reference to those that are found in the main location of the gems in Montana. That being the Yogo Gulch in the Little Belt Mountains, located in Judith Basin County. Other gems from the state are simply referred to as Montana sapphires.
I Can Really Just Start Digging And Find Stuff?
Well, yes and no. Gem Mountain can offer you and your family an incredible adventure, but you don't have to worry about having a large equipment endorsement on your drivers license! They do all the work for you, you get to reap (hopefully) the benefits! They can even ship unfiltered gravel and dirt right to your doorstep! You can find them between Drummond and Philipsburg in Montana.
