Brought this one home last Sunday.
From the west side of US 60 at Queen Creek bridge.Lots more quartz on both sides of the highway, including some samples that would take two to carry.

Looks like there is either some gold or iron pyrite mixed in there.

:idea:
I think it's a good clue Roc.
The "three red hills" may also be three small mounds of pure hematite nearby,and just to the east, which are also shaped like "teepees" or "wikiups".

The clue that gave the blind Apache woman to Schooley, is not for hills but for boulders which are located on a mountainside. You can recognize two of these " wickiups " in the " Doc Thorne " DeGrazia's sketch.
The third and the middle you can recognize in the Horse stone map.

Sounds like you have everything all figured out Marius.
If so, then I offer my humblest congratulations.
Who knows, maybe someday we will run into each other out there in the mountains ?

I can't accept your congrats, Wayne, because are based only in my words. Would be more authentic and acceptable if you would see it with your eyes and would remember my words.
And who knows? Maybe one day our paths would crisscross in the Supers or just will follow the same path.
