Jumping Jeep Moss Agate From Mitchell, Oregon

• CATEGORIES: Features

As best as I can figure out, there is a real type of agate called Jumping Jeep Moss Agate. If anyone can chime in on this, feel free. The “Shirts” in the story refers to Shirts Quant, who was a real person.

Here’s the story I found . . . “ANOTHER FAMOUS DISCOVERY IS THE JUMPIN JEEP MOSS AGATE FIND NEAR MITCHELL OREGON. NOW SHIRTS AND A FELLA BY THE NAME OF MITCHELL LOCATED THIS CLAIM WAY UP ON THE SIDE OF A MOUNTAIN. THEY WERE GETTING SOME FANTASTIC AGATE OUT. THERE WAS A HUGE BOULDER OF SOLID MOSS AGATE WITH REDS AND GOLDS, BUT THEY COULD NOT BUDGE IT. THEY GOT THE IDEA OF BRINGING UP AN OLE WILLYS JEEP AND IT HAD A WINCH ON THE FRONT END, MAN THEY WINCHED THAT HOSS UP AND HIKED TO THE JEEP AND GRINNING THEY TURNED ON THE WINCH AND THE ROCK BUDGED A BIT AND BEFORE THEY COULD STOP IT THE JEEP TOOK OFF ROLLING DOWN THE MOUNTAIN WITH THE ROCK!!! IN THEIR HASTE THEY HAD FORGOT TO ANCHOR THE JEEP. SHIRTS SAID THEY JUST STOOD THERE IN AWE HE LAUGHED AND SAID “A COUPLE TIMES THAT JEEP WENT WAAAAY UP AIRBORNE” HE SAID FOLKS FROM ALL OVER HAD TO COME AND LOOK AT THAT JEEP…”

    Hi Rhonda,

    You’ll have to search Etsy, eBay or gem sites for this agate. I just did a google search, but didn’t find any available.

    I’m the owner of the Jumpin’ Jeep claim. You can order material from me through my instagram or email electricbluewindchimes@yahoo.com. We’re finding good cutting rough, botryoidal crystal plates with light amethyst, specular hematite, and skeletal points. I also have cabs and slabs available as well as my obsidian products. You can also find me in Tucson right now at the Kino gem and mineral show outside space K-3. Thank You…-Richard Morse-
