Deep Desert Expeditions is proud to be the exclusive   Tour Operator for visiting the Blue Crystal Mines.

Located in scenic Lisbon Valley, about 35 miles south of Moab, this defunct copper mine is now producing the finest Azurite anywhere.

Upon arriving at the mine you’ll be allowed to start looking for Azurite yourself!  Finding specimens on the ground is about as easy as looking down. There’s azurite and malachite absolutely everywhere.* Rosettes, geodes, and “blueberries” (azurite concretions in spherical form, found ONLY at Blue Crystal Mine) can all be collected and kept.

If you're looking for more, at the small gift shop tour participants will receive a 10% discount on purchases over $50.

Our tour includes transportation to the Mine from Moab and back to Moab.

*some restrictions apply/quantities restricted, hand tools will be supplied.
