Arizona is a treasure chest of minerals, especially for the mineral collector. It is the "Copper State" because of its many copper mines. Those mines have produced tons of mineral specimens...native copper, malachite, azurite, cuprite, chrysocolla and much more. Arizona is also the land of silver and gold. Its mines have also produced amazing specimens of wulfenite (the official Arizona State Mineral), smithsonite, fluorite, pyrite, vanadinite and quartz. It is the land of gem-quality olivine, known as peridot. This list is just the beginning. Take a journey through this book and learn about the long list of great minerals and mines of Arizona.
