Chris Tucker Minerals
Specializing in minerals from Montana
Myers, Treasure County, Montana.
On private ranch land near the community of Myers, concretions containing fine crystals of barite, calcite, quartz, gypsum, and rarely pyrite are found in exposures of Cretaceous Bearpaw Shale.
Here is a typical view of the terrain near Myers.
Several concretions can be seen in this image, they average about one meter in size.
Here is my friend and sometimes collecting partner Sadie. She feels that this concretion makes a fine bed.
