 Tucked away in the northwest corner of New Jersey the Franklin and Sterling mines are considered
 one of the top 10 mineral collecting localities in the world. The Franklin and Sterling mines are fabulously rich in a unique zinc-iron-manganese ore deposit the likes of which exist nowhere else in the world.
Together these mines are known as the Fluorescent Mineral capital of the world and boast over three hundred different minerals, with more than 60 new mineral species claiming this area as their type locality.  

 

​Iíve found collecting at these two mines to be both a relaxing and rewarding experience.
