One of the worlds most remote Amethyst mines, in Arizona?

One of our favorite show’s on the discovery channel is Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe. Mr. Rowe has worked tons of jobs across America but one place he’s yet to visit is a remote Amethyst mine on four peaks.

Earlier this year the crew over at Sami Fine Jewelry in Fountain Hills sent someone up in a Helicopter to one of the most remote mine locations on the planet, hoping to Lure Mr. Rowe to our lovely state. We all know that Arizona is rich in mineral deposits but the Four Peaks Amethyst mine is has the unique distinction of being the last operating Amethyst mine in north America.

What is amethyst? It’s a Purple colored variety of Quartz that is used often in southwestern art and jewelry. It’s nice to know that a store as prominent as Sami Fine Jewelry still takes time to explore its suppliers like this. At Cambridge properties we too believe that you can’t truly know what your selling if you don’t know where it comes from. We love learning about places like the four peaks Amethyst mine, it’s just another reminder that we live in a state that has more than meets the eye.

Did you know you can search the MLS without giving up your information?

Everyone says you can use their tool to search MLS just like a realtor. What nobody tells you is that in order to search MLS you’re first going to have to give them your personal information. At Cambridge Properties we believe that you should be able to search the MLS all you want without having to give us your information.

Don’t get us wrong, we want to be your agent when your buying or selling, but that’s not always why you’re searching. Real estate is something you are going to be involved with for your entire life and at Cambridge properties we believe there is no rush. Take you time, use our search tool to look all over the valley just like a realtor and if you ever have any questions we’d love to hear from you.

At Cambridge Properties we’ve dealt with some interesting spaces in the Phoenix market. We’ve sold high rise lofts downtown and resort villa’s in Paradise Vallley at Montelucia, but we’ve never sold a house at almost 1k/sqft!

We understand that in England land is scarce, but the fact that this property doesn’t have running hot water makes us thankful we live and work in Arizona.
