Hello, I thought I would share my experience on the latest trip to the Royal Peacock Opal Mine. I wanted to get a away from work and the house and there isnt a quiter place you could find. I was walking along the opal bearing bank when something caught my eye. Most people like to pick a place an dig all day, im more lazy and I like to walk the bank and look for the easy to reach stuff. I saw what looked like a tooth and proceeded to pull out a camelid jaw section (I think) that had two teeth in it! I was super happy with that find because finding a tooth is somewhat rare. I started to dig around in the bank and I found quite a bit more of the jaw. Here are the pictures. It was one of the best fossils that the owners of the mine had seen so I gave it to them to put in the display at the gift shop. I figured that more people could enjoy it that way rather than sitting in my house. I always wanted to find a nice jaw so I guess I can cross that one off the list. If your ever in Northern Nevada you can stop by the Peacock and check it out. Thanks for looking Jesse
