Opals were first discovered In Idaho during the summer of 1802, l»y George Shirley and II. C. Anchor. The mines are situated in section 13. township 1 north, range 4 west Boise Meridian, Owyhee county, The mines have only been operated in a desultory fashion, but about 12,000 carats of opals In the rough have been taken out since the discovery. The opals are found in a dyke or vein of dark blue or black andesite rock, 25 feet in thickness, running iu a northwest and southwest direction, with nearly a perpendicular pitch. This crops out on the surface for a distance of about 750 feet in length and 25 feet wide. In the center ofthis dyke Is a stratum of jasper, very hard four to five feet wide, on each side of which the opals are found in seams and pockets. Opals have been traced for a distance of 1250 feet along the surface. The greatest depth reached Is about 40 feet, all open cuts. The mines have recently been pur chased by a Spokane and Boise syndi cate, who propose to develope and work tnein to their full capacity. The property will not only he worked in a systematic manner, but the company is planning to install at some conven ient place lapidaries and other ma chinery, which will finish the product and put it on the market. Opals come in white, yellow, red, brown, blue, green and grav colors. The precious opal displays a series of colors when turned in the hand, and is the most sought for variety. The finest speci mens of precious opal come from Aus tralia and Hungary, while Mexico produces some that are choice. The fire opal is distinguished by its fire-red reflections, and when choice are valu able, There is a good demand for fine opals, they being considered, when fine, a precious stone, and the price asked per carat for choice stones sure ly classes them as precious. A staff correspondent of the North west Mining Record recently visited the Owyhee mines and contributes the following letter: Boice, Idaho, Oct. 14, 1903. "We left Nampa on the Oregon Short*Line behind a pair of bronchos for the opal fields. After a drive of 14 miles we reached Soake rlverat Warm Springs Ferry, then a drive up over the undulating hills some two and a half miles to the mines. The country is barren, and but little verdure, ex cept the ever present sage brush; everything shows volcanic action: great stretches of lava line the banks of Snake river. Near the approach to the opal fields are sharp ridges of an desite, some red, some blue, here and there layers of white and yellow clays. The beautiful effects of this coloring is best at early morning or at sun down, as it catches the first of the last glints of sunshine. "But at last we are at the opal mines in the midst of the kaleidos copic coloring. The opals are found imbedded in a great andesite reef, which is explored for several hundred feet in width. The andesite is or a blue-gray in color, and resembles a very coarse article of granite, and conies out Iu blocks from a foot to two feet square. In the seams be tween these blocks tbe seam opal Is found in nests. The miner will dud a small seam that looks like the color ing of a rainbow, finer than dust; that is tne opal blossom. He follows It up—It may be a foot, it may be ten then in a radius of a few feet he will find from a handful to a quart of gems. And they are gems, of every culor; with every slight movement they flash out gieen, gold, scarlet, purple, living fires—it is Impossible to describe one; tbe poverty of lang uage forbids it. "Sometimes great bunches, or areas of a chalk-like formation occur in the formation. The opal bereis found in geods—little bard balls from tbe size of a pea to ones as large as a cocoa nut. having a pinkish-colored shell— of stone, very hard. In these geods are oftlmes a beautiful opal, covered with a shell. "The opal mines were discovered some years ago by a cattle man who happened to get off bis horse, when a flash of light attracted his attention; it turned half a dozen colors In an In sluut. He found a number of gems lying on the ground. He told his friends and in a short time a rush was made to tho opal fields. Indica tions of opals were found In other lo calities in Idaho, but none could equal the Soake river find. Open cuts were run over a large tract of the opal deposit; gems were taken out by the handful—beautiful as a dream. The owners were offered a big sum for their find; but no, they could do as well as any one else. They attempted to work It as they would a quartz mine, by tunneling and using giant mm — For Drunkonnass, Opium, IxT r «® r P hine * nd |\eeley^rs * " and Nsurasthsnit. the keeley IHSTITUTE, Dwight, III, M c«na* a ure Strictly CmIMmIIsI. K The result was powder for blasting, that many of the finest gems were shivered and cracked by the explosion The owners knew nothing of practi cal working of precious stones, how to make use of their find, and not willing that others should I\ 1st or were that could—by putting a prohibitory On the outskirts price on the mines, of their mines hundreds of other lo T cations were ^uade. In many of them found opal formation—milk opal opaque opal, often irridfscent tints, but of no value. Hundreds of such sent out as being lda were specimens were ho opals; they were even sold to peo ple as gems. During the world's fair at Chicago a collection of opals val ued it $8000 was exhibited from this mine. The display attracted a great deal of attention. The collection was E m. er stolen from the exhibit, and the own ers were never reimbursed except an appropriation in their favor of $750 by the Idaho state legislature for their collection which had taken the grand gold medal over all other dis plays, and several diplomas. Hungarian and Australian opals were beautiful; the fire opals of Mexico were grand, but the Idaho gems were indescribable—they won all hearts. "The loss of their collection and the small reimbursement received discouraged them, and work was a bandoned until they could sell, which they have done for something like a reasonable figure. "There Is not an opal product but what is found in these mines. The opal owes its origin to hot springs that existed during the volcanic up heaval. That they were of old origin was evident, for in the beds have been found the fossil remains of the Territary horse, or three-toed horse, the bones of which were turned to opal, by the solution from these springs flowing over them. "The mines of great promise, and the new owners are to be congratulat ed in their acquisition of them. It only needs a little business ability with knowledge of the industry to make them as profitable as the best gold mines in the country. W. C. AUSTIN. The M 144 Berkeley Street.
