Long Description:
This creek bed was made due to this landslide. The green crystals you are looking for can be found anywhere, if you look hard enough. They are usually hard to distinguish as they have lots of dust and dirt on them, but they can be found at the surface. It took me about 10 minutes to find a good one (see picture in gallery). The above coordinates is for the best assessable place to find it, and is where I was hunting too.

The green rock can have traces of asbestos so please be carful when collecting it in the field. More information can be found here: (visit link)
