Moqui Marbles on Grand Staircase. These are Iron Hematite formations that are found in the Navajo Sandstone on Grand Staircase National Monument. Unfortunately the area is targeted by profiteers who have removed a lot of them because there's a market demand for these natural marbles. It is illegal to collect them and people will be prosecuted if caught. I went to many sites based on GPS coordinates over the last few days photographing the marbles just to find many of them gone after comparing photos that other people have posted from these sites. I refuse to give the locations I visit in order to protect them. When people steal these from the land, I've come to learn that it destroys the natural beauty. Without these Moqui Marbles, some of these areas lose their lustre. Let's protect the beauty.
