Re: Cathedral Geode Hunting Trip
I visit the mines for both geodes and agates about 4-6 times a year. If you are looking for just one, visit a show here in the US like Tucson, etc. Rare to find someone that speaks english there ( a couple however) When we hand select ours, it is usually 2 large containers at a time. Minumum order to have shipped out of Brazil because of export taxes to the Brazilians is US 5K ! The mines are not dangerous at all. Have to watch out for mesquitos though because of Dengue fever which I was lucky to get last trip this Feb. Any other q's, just let me know.
