  Silverado Mine, Tungstite claims, Striped Mountain, San Bernardino County, California
Photograph taken 24 April 2005.

Silver was shipped from the Silverado Claim before 1900. The Tungstite skarn is along a dolomite/granite contact containing epidote, garnet, and scheelite (calcium tungstate); it was prospected intil 1951. The four rock ruins were apparently housing and an assay building. Also nearby is rockwork probably associated with an old regional freight road.
