Chris Tucker Minerals
Specializing in minerals from Montana


Marie Mine, Carbon County, Montana

Perhaps the finest specimens of the uncommon mineral tyuyamunite along with very interesting pyrite and marcasite have come from the depths of the Marie mine.  The mine consists of a single adit with several hundred meters of underground development.  The property was actively mined during the 1950's.  In recent years, the mine has been classified as a hazardous site by governmental agencies and access is no longer possible.
