We spent some time talking with a few people who found some excellent stones in Payson and they shared some of their knowledge with us.

This particular video is focused on honing in on where the source of the quartz is coming from based on what you find randomly on the ground.

This video is the one that describes the rocks you’ll be looking for: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUs__0y0gxs

One person said they went from finding 20 nice stones to 200 nice ones during a dig (in open dig season: Sept 30 – Mar 1). When you find 10 times the stones, and those stones are closer to the source, they are often less damaged and ultimately are 10x more likely to find the ones that you’ll really love!
