ATTENTION GEM & MINERAL HUNTERS.  Between Negaunee and Ishpeming is a knoll known as Jasper Hill. It is made up of Jaspilite - brilliant light red bands of jasper alternating with bands of hard, bluish-black, specular hematite. The Jaspilite is folded, bent and twisted in a most fanciful fashion. When polished, specimens assume a very beautiful polish.  In the Ropes Gold Mine area, north of Ishpeming, verde antique marble can be collected from the old marble quarries. This rock consisting of serpentine, mottled and streaked with calcite and dolomite, is very attractive when polished.
