    Not actual diamonds guys nor is it quarts. They are valuable if you love rockhounding and finding your own version of treasure.

    I'm pretty sure this place is off-limits I'm pretty sure I walked up the fence lines like the ones you show and signs on trees saying no tresspass. Walked a good while. I have been finding black looking glass that is orange when you shine light through it and reflects colors on the side I will let you know where I found it if you let me know where this is

    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.

    These aren’t diamonds guys. They are quarts crystals and they are called lake county diamonds.

      SAMSAMSAM 1 Hour ago

      Dakota McMichael I do t think they are quarts. I have a ton of these and they remind me more of volcanic glass similar to obsidian but clear.

    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

    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.

      SAMSAMSAM 1 Hour ago

      Pigsa Sailong it’s actually more like volcanic glass than actual diamond. It’s the clear version of obsidian. Clear Lake, ca area is the only place in California that has them.

    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.
