Stock footage available from http://videosource.com/search.html Transcript: THE STATE OF MINAS GERAIS IS SO LITTERED WITH CRYSTAL, SPARKLING ORES AND SEMI-PRECIOUS STONES THAT THE LAND IS ALMOST ALWAYS SMOLDERING AS A RESULT OF SUN STARTED FIRES. 01.30.41 HERE THE EARTH'S CRUST HAS BLOSSOMED, YIELDING BEAUTIFUL CLUSTER'S OF EVERY IMAGINABLE TYPE OF NATURAL CRYSTAL......... ALTHOUGH SOME OF THESE UNUSUAL CRYSTALS ARE MERE ATTRACTIVE CURIOSITIES, SOME OF THEM, SUCH AS VARIOUS MEMBERS OF THE BERYL FAMILY ARE AMONG THE MOST VALUABLE SUBSTANCES KNOWN TO MAN. WHEN THE EARLY BANDIERANTES BEGAN SEARCHING THESE HILLS FOR DIAMONDS AND EMERALDS, THEY HAD NO IDEA THAT BRAZIL WOULD ONE DAY BECOME THE WORLD'S LEADING PRODUCER OF GEMS AND COLORED GEMSTONES. PERHAPS NO ONE KNOWS MORE ABOUT THE FASCINATING WORLD OF BRAZILIAN GEMSTONES THAN THE MAN WHO FIRST INTRODUCED BRAZIL TO THE ART OF GEM CUTTING, JULES SAUER; Brazil is the paradise of gemstones" "and the aquamarine......primary deposits" ".......In 1963 the first emeralds were found "........tourmaline ....... amethyst brazilianite OPAL "Imperial topaz "THE CAPOA MINE, OPERATED BY AMSTERDAM SAUER IN RODRIGO SILVA NEAR OURO PRETO IS ONE OF THE FEW PRODUCING IMPERIAL TOPAZ MINES IN THE WORLD TODAY. HERE THE TOPAZ YIELDING MATERIAL IS HYDRAULICALLY DISMOUNTED USING WATER FROM A NEARBY HOLDING POND. THE MATERIAL IS THEN MECHANICALLY TRANSPORTED TO THE BEGINNING OF A SERIES OF FLUMES AND SCREENS WHERE IT IS CAREFULLY CLASSIFIED AND SEPARATED. HERE THE MATERIAL IS FURTHER CLASSIFIED BY A VIBRATING SEPARATOR. IN THE FINAL STAGE OF THE PROCESS, 23.08~ BELTROUGH THE PROMISING STONES ARE HAND PICKED FROM AMONG THE QUARTZ CRYSTAL AND OTHER MATERIAL THAT HAS BEEN CONCENTRATED FROM THE ORIGINAL SLURRY. EVEN IN THIS HIGHLY EFFICENT MINE, IT TAKES TONS OF RAW MATERIAL TO PRODUCE EACH CARAT OF PRECIOUS IMPERIAL TOPAZ THE FINEST STONES FROM THE MINES IN MINAS GERAIS AND ELSEWHERE IN BRAZIL EVENTUALLY FIND THEIR A. SAUER SHOP WAY TO THE JEWELER'S SHOP WHERE THEY ARE ARTFULLY TRANSFORMED INTO THE CENTERPIECES FOR SOME OF THE WORLD'S MOST BEAUTIFUL JEWELRY. BECAUSE OF THE LOW COST OF LABOR, AND THE AVAILABILITY OF QUALITY GEMSTONES IN BRAZIL, THE BARGAINS TO BE FOUND IN THE FINE JEWELRY SHOPS OF BRAZIL BRING BARGAIN SEEKERS HERE FROM AROUND THE WORLD. AND THERE'S NO BETTER PLACE TO BUY THEM THAN IN THE FINE SHOPS OF RIO ....... THE LURE OF THESE BEAUTIFUL STONES IS SO GREAT THAT ALMOST NO ONE LEAVES BRAZIL WITHOUT AT LEAST ONE OF THESE BEAUTIFUL COLORED GEMSTONES. THE VALUES TO BE FOUND IN BRAZILIAN GEMSTONES ARE LEGEND, BUT YOU MUST BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU BUY....... EVERYONE HAS A BARGAIN WAITING FOR THE UNWARY TOURIST..... ......SOME OF THE CHEAPER ONES OFFERED BY THESE BOYS ON THE STREETS MAY EVEN BE COLORED GLASS IMITATIONS... AUDIO "GUARANTEE" ANYONE SERIOUS ABOUT PURCHASING FINE JEWELERY WOULD DO WELL TO LEARN A LITTLE ABOUT THE FOUR "C"'S.

Mining for Emeralds in Brazil by GIA
 
02:32
http://gia.edu/gem-encyclopedia Mining for Emeralds in Brazil by GIA. Emerald gemstone has many special qualities. From Sao Paolo, Brazil, Sergio Martins discusses the emerald gemstone history, industry and how sourcing this precious stone is performed in Brazilian mines. He explains the different types of Brazilian mining systems that exist at different locations throughout the country. The Belmont mine has a large area and conducts open pit mining on a large scale. They have consistently produced this precious gemstone for 30 years. Sergio also discusses the Nova Era mine, different from the other emerald mines because it belongs to over 140 people. Located in the area of Garimpeiro, emerald mining in this region involves miners making shafts and looking for the vein that leads to a large concentration of emerald, a “pocket”. Mining can take up to few years before any emerald stones are discovered, but once found, they can produce up to 10 million dollars worth of emeralds in one pocket.

Let's Blast!

NOTE: Although this video shows an up-close look at the blasting process, NEVER go near an active surface mine or blast site without Federal training and permission. FYI, the white bags are Emulsified Ammonium Nitrate. The read cap is TNT and the silver rod that is connected to it by the yellow wire is the blasting cap, it's what ignites the shot. The white pebbles that are emptied into the blast holes by the powder trucks are the main explosive- "ANFO" or Ammonium Nitrate, which is a mixture of fertilizer and diesel fuel. Once the holes are filled with explosives, rock fines or "stemming" is pushed back in the holes and packed down to keep the explosives under pressure. After all the holes are loaded and rigged up, it's time for the fireworks! And remember kids, don't try this at home! Want to see more Blasting?

Old Connecticut Path: Ashford Historical Society Presentation - Ashford, CT
 
01:18:37
Rediscovering the Old Connecticut Path is much more than a story about places. The "live" 78 minute presentation with Q&A tells the larger story of families and what they did for our nation. The video expands upon the content of previous presentations. The Path travels through places of great natural beauty and historic significance in their own right. But, there is a much bigger story to be told about the heritage of the families who traveled the Path and their contributions to the heritage of our country. Thanks to the Ashford Historical Society and Conserving Babcock Library for sponsoring the Old Connecticut Path presentation in Ashford. More than 25 people came out on a Saturday afternoon to learn more about the places along the Path and the story of the people who traveled along its route. As early as 1633-36, the migration from Massachusetts Bay at Boston/Cambridge west to Connecticut began following the Old Connecticut Path. John Oldham followed the Path to the Connecticut valley in 1633 followed by the Watertown, MA congregation in 1635 to settle Wethersfield, CT. Reverend John Wareham and the Dorchester congregation followed the Path in 1635 to settle Windsor, CT. Reverend Thomas Hooker and his entire congregation walked along the Old Connecticut Path for two weeks across the wilderness in 1636 from Cambridge, MA to establish Hartford, CT. Join me for a walk and use your imagination to experience the landscape traveled by the pioneers of the 1600s.

World's Deepest Mine - Gold Alchemy
 
04:51
South Africa's TauTona mine, real life alchemy, and Halicephalobus Mephisto. Footage from the 2012 documentary, "Down to the Earth's Core". We have travelled into space and looked deep into the universe's depths, but the world beneath our feet remains unexplored and unseen. Now, that's about to change. For the first time in one epic unbroken shot, we embark on an impossible mission - using spectacular computer generated imagery to smash through three thousand miles of solid rock, and venture from our world into the underworld and on to the core of the Earth itself. It's a journey fraught with danger. One thousand feet down we find ourselves inside one of the planet's most volatile places - the San Andreas Fault. Caught between two huge rock slabs, we watch as stress builds and then releases. It unleashes an earthquake and blasts us on towards rivers of molten rock, explosive volcanoes, tears in the Earth's crust and giant tornadoes of liquid metal. But for every danger, there are wonders beyond imagination. Four hundred feet below the surface, a three hundred million year old fossilized forest, with every leaf and every piece of bark perfectly preserved. At one thousand feet down we enter a cave of giant crystals, glistening in deadly 122 degree heat. More than two miles underground we find buried treasure - gold and gems. Deeper still there are valuable resources - salt, oil, coal and iron. And over one hundred miles down we see the sparkling beauty of diamonds. As we descend we piece together our planet's extraordinary story. We rewind time to discover how prehistoric forests became modern-day fuel. 1700 feet down a layer of rock reveals the extraordinary story of the dinosaurs' cataclysmic death. We watch stalactites form and gold grow before our eyes. The deeper we travel into the underworld the more we understand our world above the surface. A bigger picture takes shape - a cycle of destruction and creation, driven by the core that sustains our dynamic planet and makes the Earth the only planet with life in a seemingly lifeless universe. Until, finally, three thousand miles down, we reach the core. Inside it lie the secrets of life as we know it - the magnetic force field that protects life on Earth from the sun's deadly rays, the ancient heat source that keeps our planet alive. Down to the Earth's Core brings the latest science together with breathtaking computer generated imagery. The result is an unmissable journey into an extraordinary world - full of dangers, wonders and secrets. And it's all down there, beneath our feet, right now waiting to be discovered.

The miners can find precious stones such as sapphire, ruby and garnet in this area. Cambodia ruby rough can be very expensive, so cutters try to conserve as much weight as possible. Most often, river mining and local mining produces small ruby in Pailin. However, a single source never consistently yields gems that are all the same color and quality.

Silver Mine Deficits set to Explode BIG in 2016
 
03:44
Get our Free Silver Report with Top Investment Idea NOW: http://FutureMoneyTrends.com/Silver Silver Will Soon Spike Significantly Higher The Silver Supply Deficit is About to Explode A real annual physical deficit is about to erupt higher in the silver market. In 2014, the world had a 78.6 million ounce deficit in worldwide supply vs. physical demand. The 2015 deficit ballooned much higher, to a 130 million ounce shortfall. According to Societe Generale, the silver supply in 2016 is likely to decrease another 9.2%! This, of course, has everything to do with base metal mine cutbacks. Of which have seen major mines close down in the past 2 years, including 26 zinc mines just announced for temperory closure in China until next June. It’s important for everyone watching this to know that most silver comes from copper, zinc, and gold mines. A silver mine is extremely rare, most investors, even silver indexes, aren’t really buying companies that generate their income from silver. Typically the name of the company has more silver in it than their actual business! And some of the names might shock you… Silver Standard, Hecla Mining, and Tahoe Resources… these are silver stocks, right?   Well, sort of, but less than half of their revenues comes from silver. What about Pan American Silver, the largest publicly-traded silver producer? About half of their revenues come from gold and base metals.   Even with the largest private silver miner in the world, Fresnillo, under 50% of their revenues are generated from silver. If you’re looking for true silver plays, go to FutureMoneyTrends.com/silver for our top suggestions. One of which currently generates 70% of their income from silver, and will soon reach 80%! Silver demand, which has been on the rise, is surging! And as we pointed out, supply is cliff diving due to base metal mine closures and cutbacks. The U.S. Mint is on track to sell a record amount of coins this year! FutureMoneyTrends.com believes that the demand for silver is about to surge much higher. 1. We have a confirmed bull market in 2016. 2. One-third of the central banks have a negative interest rate policy. The investment demand for silver won’t be regional – it’s going to be global! 3. The mining shares are a leading indicator, and our two top picks for this sector are up over 600% year to date. Physical bullion is headed much higher and industry leaders are starting to acknowledge it. Earlier this year, a major tech company contacted First Majestic Silver to inquire about purchasing silver directly from the company. For a precious metal like silver, this is not a normal inquiry at all! According to the COMEX their should be an abundant supply of silver. But now, with Asian markets competing and actually demanding real metal to back there trades, the silver market is at an inflection point, and we agree with Keith Neumeyer, CEO of the worlds top primary silver producer, triple digit silver is in the very near future.

Jeff Swanger continues his in-depth account of mining for gems at the Oceanview Kunzite Mine that he discovered and started mining kunzite gemstone from. He also speaks frankly about the formidable challenges that miners face with depths below 600 feet, such as ventilation and addresses questions regarding the mine’s discovery and various mining processes. Viewers may be intrigued by Swanger’s detailed yet concise explanation of the length of time it takes to clear a pocket of kunzite, as well as several other interesting facts about kunzite crystals, and the overall profitability of the Oceanview Mine.

Ammonite Factory - Canmore, Alberta - CANADA - Ammolite History, Mining, Miner, Producer - RARE GEM
 
01:44
http://ammonite-factory.com Ammolite is one of the world's rarest gems. It comes in the full spectrum of colours: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. The quickly depleting world supply of Ammolite makes it a unique and memorable purchase. Ammolite is known as Alberta's Gemstone. Ammolite's iridescent colours glow with the beauty of a rainbow. Millions of years of tectonic pressure created this beautiful gem from the fossilized remains of the ammonite shell. A glittering addition to any jewelry collection, Ammolite's luminous qualities rival the famous black opal for colours and fire. Each Ammolite gem is unique in brilliance, colours and pattern. The rarest and most desirable Ammolite shows three or more colours and is graded AA. Ammolite, like all gem stones, should be treated gently: not soaked in water, not exposed to harsh chemicals or extreme temperatures, cleaned only with a soft cloth. We offer some of the best in ammolite jewellery, including pendants, earrings, bracelets, rings and more. We have a large selection of free-form unset Ammolite gems, as well as the rare two-sided Imperials. We also carry a large inventory of free-standing art pieces and full ammonite fossils. You'll find possibly the largest collection of Ammolite and ammonites under one roof when you visit our factory and gallery. Since 1987, owner Richard Morgan has personally gathered the precious stones, which are recovered by open pit mining. Come visit "The Factory" to take a tour and learn about the mining and manufacturing process. 106 Bow Meadows Crescent Canmore, Alberta - Canada (403) 678-1786 ______ Ammolite History Ammolite comes from the fossil shells of the Upper Cretaceous disk-shaped ammonites Placenticeras meeki and Placenticeras intercalare, and (to a lesser degree) the cylindrical baculite Baculites compressus. Ammonites were cephalopods, or squid-like creatures, that thrived in tropical seas until becoming extinct along with the dinosaurs at the end of the Mesozoic era. The ammonites that form Ammolite inhabited an inland subtropical sea that bordered the Rocky Mountains. This area is known today as the Cretaceous or Western Interior Seaway. As the seas receded, the ammonites were buried and crushed by layers of bentonite sediment. This sediment preserved the aragonite of their shelled remains, preventing it from converting to calcite. Through diagenesis, the shells were impregnated by trace elements present in these sediments, the most common of these being iron and copper. This accounts for the predominance of the red and green colours. Mining operations are fairly basic, involving the excavation of shallow pits with backhoes. Significant deposits of gem-quality ammolite are found only in the Bearpaw Sea formation that extends from Alberta to Saskatchewan in Canada and south to Montana in the USA. The best grade of gem-quality Ammolite is along high-energy river systems on the eastern slopes of the Rockies in southern Alberta.

Herkimer Diamond Mining "Behind the Scenes"
 
00:52
One goes to great lengths to mine for Herkimer Diamonds! Now the source and formation of Herkimer Diamonds is of particular interest to us here at American Geode because the Herkimer Diamond was formed in "pockets" not unlike the pockets that formed geodes. Most quartz crystals grow, over the course of millions of years attached to a matrix, attached to the surrounding rock or stone. So in those formations only one end of the quartz crystal grows to its point. With Herkimer Diamonds forming inside pockets, freed from the surrounding matrix stone, they grow points on both ends. The Herkimer Diamond began forming nearly 500 million years ago in pockets within a sedimentary rock called Dolostone (Dolomite and Limestone). Sedimentary rock, different from its two cousins Igneous rock and Metamorphic rock, is formed by layers of mineral and organic matter under hundreds of million years of pressure. As more layers of mineral and organic matter are deposited, this increases the pressure and weight on the lower and earlier layers of sedimentary rock below. The Dolostone covered Herkimer County during the Cambrian Age, when Herkimer County was also the bottom of the sea that spanned across North America. Now this is the part of the Herkimer Diamond formation that is similar to the way geodes are formed: organic material, plants and sea life would die and be buried under new layers of sedimentary stone. When these plants and other sea life would decompose under the rock, they release gases, and this gas is what formed the "pocket." Evidence of this organic, plant material succumbing to decomposition is clear when you see the black shiny flakes of Anthraxolite that surround or leak from these pockets. Anthraxolite is a carbon compound and by-product formed when organic material breaks down. So as the organic material decayed and broke down it became a gas, trapped below layers of sedimentary stone. Air creates its own pressure inside a substance, so the air pressure was carving out its own cavity from the inside out. These air pockets became the pockets we rockhounds discover as we crumble, break, and peel away layers of the dolostone. Over the course of 200-250 million years the layers of sedimentary rock increased and grew, and this increased the pressure and heat on the buried dolostone. Also inside each of these air pockets were various quartz and carbon elements and other compounds "feeling the heat" from being buried below layers of sedimentary rock. Under this pressure of the sedimentary layers of rock, and the ensuing heat, the quartz and other compounds inside these pockets began to transform themselves. Finally, over the course of 300 million years, the glaciers that sat atop Herkimer County began to melt, and washed away layers of the sedimentary rock, and allowed the compounds and elements inside these pockets to cool down and then crystallize. An important question to answer right now is "why are the Herkimer Diamonds double-terminated?" The answer is that quartz does not adhere to the dolostone, therefore the quartz trapped inside these air pockets did not attach to the surrounding matrix host stone. The process left the quartz crystals free to fully crystallize unattached and allowed both of the ends to grow into fully terminated points. Many Herkimer Diamonds are found as clusters attached to one another. They adhered to one another during their crystal growth formation, but again did not adhere to the dolostone interior of the air pocket. The value of Herkimer Diamonds is determined by size and their opacity or translucence. The larger and more translucent Herkimer Diamonds are worth more to a collector or jeweler than the smaller opaque specimens. Knowing the history and background of the Herkimer Diamond however lends a premium in our opinion when you are considering adding Herkimer Diamonds to your collection. They are not commercially mined due to various New York state laws limiting mining in the state, and most of Herkimer County is being used today by happy grazing cows, sugary apple orchards, tart cherry trees, farms of squash, cabbages and onions, and wine grapes. We have recently gained access to heretofore unmined and barren acres in the Herkimer County area on the same geologic slope and ledge as the traditional Herkimer Diamond mines.

The Kimberly Diamond Mine Museum in South Africa. This is where diamonds were discovered in 1879. De Beers eventually stopped mining the pit which was allowed to fill with water and dug shafts down into the diamond-bearing rocks below. They stopped mining altogether in 1914 and this is now part of a museum. The city of Kimberly is on the horizon. De Beers headquarters is still in Kimberly.

Cherokee Mine of Butte County
 
01:43
This beautiful piece of landscape is part of the Cherokee mining operation that occurred around the 1860s. It is the only diamond mine in California, and the site where the first diamond was found in California. The mine was discovered in 1852 by pioneers being led there by Indians! Fast forward to the 1870s and Cherokee was famous for being the largest hydraulic mine in the U.S. mining both gold, and diamonds. Over 50 million dollars of gold made its way out of these mountains during 1852 to around 1890 when mining stopped. California put in laws to stop all hydraulic mining around 1890 due to concerns over the environment. Once even the president Rutherford Hayes even stopped by to visit the mines in 1880, that’s how big an operation it was! The local township really was one of the famous gold rush boom towns of California at its peak boasting a population of thousands. Now when I went there, the only thing remaining was a museum that’s only open 2 days a year, and the boarded up historic post office, so it’s pretty desolate now. While the people have departed the beautiful landscape remains for us to discover. I hope you enjoy the sight of these once prosperous mines.
