OPAL NINES IN IDAHO.
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 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
* " and Nsurasthsnit.
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
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
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
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
"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.

Mrs. Bush is now in perfect
health because she took Wine of

failed to.,bring her relief. Any
