    There's something ominous about his place. I am moved to say that pile of rocks there likely formed a monument many many a year ago. My better half and I have found a bunch of beautiful places like this in our explorations too. I hope we find this place soon too. It's on my bucket list. Thank you for sharing.

    So this quartz really is not worth much even if you make jewelry out of it, and it is toxic in some forms isn't it?

    Are you stupid in the head? the numbers on the mohs scale are very far appart in relality, a 7 or an 8 is light years away from the hardness of a diamond that is 10,. a 10 is 124,000 times harder then a 9, lol and a 9 is 1000 times harder then an 8, do you get it lol

    Enjoyed the video but exhausted all my online mapping resources trying to find the place. The only thing I haven’t tried is google VR, lol I was able to deduce that it’s a Pomo Indian legend but they’re at least as far north as Ukiah from my recent work up there.

    DeBeers owns an industrial grade diamond mine at Table Top Mtn. in Butte Co. but the only place I've found any was on a levy near the Forebay. I've heard it said the mine lets people go through their tailings but I've never known anyone who has; most are still looking for gold.

    I grew up coming here every summer to waterski and camp. I love this area. My husband's family lives in Clearlake area and I was given a little glass bottle of Clearlake diamonds. Mine are all pretty small and actually seem to have slightly different hues of color from blues to almost a pink, but it's so faint you have to have them together to notice it. I didn't realize they got so large. I would love to hunt for some. I love rock hunting. Been collecting since I was a little girl. :) EDIT TO ADD: My Clearlake diamonds are old. They had belonged to my husband's grandmother. Not sure how long she had them. She lived to be 87 and after she passed my father-in-law gifted them to me.

I swear i found 3 of those prospecting a beautiful completely shaded creek north of here , hold them in your hand underwater and they disapear . Tellin you straight a really old retired state geologist told me where to go for all kinds of good stuff and i have yet to be disappointed . I have equipment for you but bring your detector , im so serious man . I grew up in cloverdale , mtn ranch , covolo , north spent many years in and around burney up from redding , later in novato . Was also raised all up the oregon coast , my dad was a timberfaller and a survivalist so i didnt live in a house till i was 12 , we lived off the land and deep in the woods in canvas tents . hope thats enough background , come up .

    Love your videos, you are the Bill Murray of rock hounds. But I wish you would do some more studying on rocks and minerals so that you can correctly identify and describe the things you find. These are not valuable carbon based diamonds. They are silica quartz "diamonds".

    Thanks for sharing. I love exploring. I I drove up to this area. It was a 9 hour drive. It took me another 9 hours searching from other mountain peaks to find this location. You offered enough information in your video to find this spot. 2 words in this video used in the possessive form helped out tremendously. I did not make it to the flats. I found a small placer deposit that yielded a 100 carat specimen. Thank you, thank you. I would enjoy hanging out with you sometime. We are very much the same with respect for animal life and care for the land. I removed any trash I found along the way. Best Regards, Kenny

      IDK exactly where he's at but pretty much anywhere in Lake County, California. Especially on the Mt. Konocti side of Clearlake. Best to go hunting right after it rains. Just be respectful of the local's property. There are plenty of good hunting spots on public land.

    That looks like bigfoot country! Beautiful! I really love to collect and just study the rocks but I have noticed a lot of deforestation when it comes to large quarries. Thank you for the respect you have for the area and loved the romantic story! You have my respect sir! Hope that you keep it a secret cus once people find out they will tear up that area for the ice, because not everyone fallows the rock digging code and will excavate and destroy that beautiful area.
