Comments on Yogo Sapphires: Montana's Hidden Treasure

Excerpt: The Yogo sapphire comes from the Yogo Gulch in central Montana and the discovery of this treasure came about as a happy accident. It was in 1866 as the Gold Rush was in full swing and the miners noticed that the Yogo Creek was full of pretty blue pebbles. It wasn't until 1894 that those pebbles were discovered to be sapphires and there began Montana's start of sapphire mining.
