Found not in-site, but in the Flaxville gravel deposits scattered over a large area encompassing hundreds of square miles. The beauty of this is that they cannot be claimed, mined and dug-out by a few enterprises but will be available, in smaller numbers, to public and collectors for tens and hundreds of years to come.

Lepidolite on Albite: This photograph shows a cluster of purplish-pink lepidolite crystals on a base of white albite. A small crystal of pink tourmaline can be seen on the left side of the specimen, beneath the lepidolite.

The Gem Mountain Sapphire Mine is extremely popular for its gemstone mining. A stone somewhat resembling this last has been received at the museum from Helena, Montana, but the quarries are not worked, nor is the extent of the deposit known to the writer.

A beautiful bright, flesh-pink marble occurs in abundance in Swain and Cherokee Counties, North Carolina, but is not now in the market, owing to lack of transportation. 2 days ago  Six of the samples were fully sanded and polished to show the range of colors and textures of the material.
