The Topaz #1 gemstone claim is a 20.66 acre lode mining claim centered around multiple small outcrops of granite spread West to East across the claim.

The claim boasts small imperial topaz pieces of an yellow/orange hue.  Upon survey old workings from the 50's could be found, although the disturbance was relatively small.

Topaz can be uncovered easily on the surface rock within fluid channels and gas pockets that let the topaz form over millions of years.  The basic tools needed for extraction to get started would be a rock hammer and chisel.


Host Rock Type

Volcanic Rock (Aphanitic), Felsic Volcanic Rock, Rhyolite


There are multiple free public land camping locations very close to the claim along a flat Forest Service RD that is 2WD passable.  This claim is easy to access and has very little traffic or activity, perfect for a weekend getaway to look for gemstones.


TOPAZ Topaz, an aluminum fluorsilicate, occurs as hard, transparent to translucent crystals with a wide range of color. Small topaz crystals can occasionally be found in the hills throughout New Mexico, usually in small geographical and geological areas.
