We just got in a few of these gorgeous detailed Arizona gem and mineral maps by local artist Kelly Thomas Daniel. This beautiful Arizona gem and mineral map has original border artwork of mining tools and miners, the Arizona flag and mineral crystalline formations.
We love it, and hope you do too! Framed in a cowboy era rustic ornate frame that has the look of old iron castings, this map would make a perfect addition to anyone’s collection. This map is the result of years of research and attention to detail, and is up to date.
Whether you’re into gems and minerals, love the southwestern United States, or just a fan of Arizona and our mineral history, this map is for you! Metallic and nonmetallic minerals are categorized and located in the various regions of the map. Cool for rock hounds, history and science types.
Here’s a close up look at the frame we used. The middle samples in the rusty color work perfectly blending late 19th century style with iron and mineral textures. Looks great here, but even better in person. Come by The Frame & I to check these out!
The maps are a steal at $25 unframed, but the framed one is the best (in our humble opinion)! The framed print is $295, and measures about 30″ x 38″. It has UV filtering glass on it and will last a lifetime.
We think this Arizona gem and mineral map would look amazing in old reclaimed wood or leather framing, too. However you choose to display it, it will look amazing and be a great conversation piece wherever it goes.
