Cody spent many winters in Oracle managing his mines which produced tungsten and gold. Buffalo Bill’s last performance was playing Santa for the orphans of Oracle in 1916. Read more about Buffalo Bill Cody.

The only authentic source of Cody Stone from Buffalo Bill Cody's own mines with certification from the Flint Carter Collection

Cody Stone, gold and silver in quartzFirst popularized by Tiffany's during the California Gold Rush, Cody Stone is a little known- and now extremely rare- commodity.

It is the most expensive gold and silver in the world that sells by carat weight values. Cody Stone is on display in museums worldwide and the Mining Hall of Fame and Gem Institute of America.

The specimen, on loan to the University of Arizona MIneral Museum, was independently graded at 38 out of 40 and is considered one of the finest 100% natural gold and silver specimens in the world.

The result of a search for the West's largest gold legend and the world's largest land treasure portrayed in four major motion pictures over six decades, this golden legend refuses to die and continues to grow with substantial golden values.
