This field trip will start off with a trip to the Blue Bird Mine for kyanite (pictured). Afterwards we will head to Indian Pass for dumortierite, jasper and palm bog with the possibility of fossilized snails. Kyanite, jasper, dark purple dumortierite and regular palm bog are easy to find. Good denim blue "desert lapis" dumortierite and palm bog with snails are uncommon, but findable if you keep at it. This is a surface collecting trip in a hilly area off maintained dirt roads so cars are fine. Bring plenty of water, lunch, buckets, hiking boots and hand tools. If you don't want to meet at Starbucks you can meet up with us on Ogilby Rd on the north side of Hwy 8 at 10:30.
