I have done 'extensive' research in the copper mining of Michigan and Wisconsin.
and have come to realize that we do have the copper here.
and 'possibly' in and around BURLINGTON, WISCONSIN
( The Rock Lake Pyramid  may be our Northern Connection to the  Og Circle we are looking for)

As of this week, it now seems I have found an area where extensive copper  and diamond mining
was  going on outside of Burlington.
In the area of Voree where Prophet Strang found the Brass Plates .

Calcite Crystal
It is an energy amplifier. It is said to help the
mind and body to remember information
brought to bear during astral travel and
channeling. It is useful in multi-directional
energy distribution; the energy forces directed
at the mineral separate and return at double the
intensity. It gives a polarizing prismatic energy,
which produces a spectrum of energy to clear
and to activate all of the chakras.
Inlaid calcite was used on the throne in the
Tomb of Tutankhamun c.1340 B.C.E.
1669 Erasmus Bartholinus (Denmark).
Discovered double refraction in calcite
1828 William Nicol (Scotland). Invented a
polarizing prism made from two calcite
components. The device became known
subsequently as a "nicol prism"
When you hold a square calcite over a line it will
appear to double the line. This ability will help
you by doubling the power in all spell work.
Fact:  The two stones are often found mixed together creating beautiful patterns. They are found wherever there are COPPER
The name azurite comes from its beautiful blue color (azul means blue in Arabic). The ancient Egyptians used it as a make-up for the
Azurite is believed to fortify memory and intellectual receptivity. It is believed to help ease rheumatism.
Malachite is ALSO believed to ease rheumatism. It is a symbol of creativity and is used to make one conscience of fears and desires.
It is also good for lending extra energy to magickal spells, guards against negativity and depression, calms and soothes. Enhances
the ability to give and receive love. Increases business success, money. Promotes sleep. Protection against physical danger,
especially in children. Draws out impurities, balances left and right brain functions, evil eye protector, all purpose healer, especially in
solar plexus and good for healers. Success and good fortune, especially in business, attracts money, protects your creative ideas,
stimulates thyroids, aids in weight reduction, protects during travel.
Pyrite Crystal
Iron Pyrite is also known as 'fools gold' for it often fooled the
early gold miners. Iron Pyrite crystals are used as amulets by
the North American Indians who believe in the magical powers
of this protective stone.  The ancient Mexicans made mirrors,
one side polished flat, while the other side was strongly
Iron Pyrite is a very protective stone on all levels. Should be
carried when performing dangerous work. Pyrite is also a
mental stone, used to stimulate the powers of the intellect.
Common in medium-low temperature hydrothermal veins
either on its own or with gold, sphaleite or galena. Also found
in sedimentary rocks, especially black shales where it often
replaces FOSSILS
Sphalerite on Marcite
Sphalerite is one of the very few minerals that has a total of six
directions of cleavage. If all of them were to be perfectly cleaved on
a single crystal it would form a rhombic dodecahedron.
Sphalerite's structure is analogous to the diamond structure. If
every other carbon in the diamond structure is replaced by a sulfur
atom and the remaining carbons are replaced with either a zinc or
an iron atom then basically the mineral is sphalerite.
Sphalerite is by no doubt the most important ore of zinc .
Used for the making of BRASS AND BRONZE  and for --
Inspires relaxation, reflection,
spiritual development, focus and
clarity. It encourages past life

In 1903 , an irregular rounded 2.11 carat diamond was found in Burlington (Hobbs, 1901); Cannon and Mudrey, 1981). Previously a 2.06 carat white twin was reported found there
in 1897. (Eckert, 1980 )

Hi, Mary and Brad,
Thanks again for the wonderful tour of the sacred woods. Karen and I were very happy with our experiences and will keep an eye out for future insights as well.
I  told you about a golden diamond I thought was discovered in Burlington, Wisconsin. Turns out it was found 'near' Burlington in Eagle Wisconsin; which is why it was called the Golden Eagle.
Here's a short article on it.
Love and light, Aziza  (Elizabeth Parsch)

Eagle Diamond

A gemstone, variously reported as 15.37 and 16.25 carats and described as "a dodecahedral form with triangular and circular markings on the faces," found in the town of
Eagle, Waukesha Co., in 1876

While digging a well on the site where the town's water tower now (2007) stands, workers unearthed a brilliant, 12-sided stone "of a warm sunny color." It was picked up by resident Clarissa Woods,
who thought it might be valuable. She took it to Samuel Boynton, a jeweler in Milwaukee, who suspected it was a topaz, bought it for $1.00, and took it to Chicago for analysis. The pebble was
actually the largest diamond found in the U.S. up to that time, prompting Mrs. Woods to sue Boynton (unsuccessfully). Boynton sold it for $850 to Tiffany's in New York City, and then quietly leased
the hillside where it had been found. Under the pretense of chicken farming, he erected privacy fences and started to systematically mine the hillside. After several years of fruitless digging, he
salted the location with inferior gems to attract investors for his Eagle Diamond-Mining Co. There was even talk of renaming the village Diamond Town, until no more gems were actually found. [1]

Meanwhile the Eagle Diamond remained at Tiffany's. In 1889, Tiffany's curator of precious stones, G.F. Kunz, organized an exhibit called
"Gems and Precious Stones from North America" for
the Exposition Universelle in Paris.
The collection of 382 items won a gold medal, and J.P. Morgan bought it for the American Museum of Natural History. The Eagle Diamond was exhibited
at the Museum until 1964 when a thief called "Murph the Surf" stole hundreds of gems in a daring midnight robbery. Though nearly all the stolen jewels were eventually
recovered, the Eagle Diamond was never found, and is presumed to have been cut into smaller stones and dispersed. [2]

The ancient sky patterns of groups of stars are divided into 48 constellations. The constellation of Orion is well known for its significant role in archaeo-astronomy as being one of the major star
groups which, align with strategically placed sacred sites, especially as relating to the Great Khufu Pyramid situated on the Giza Plateau in Egypt. In ancient Egyptian mythology the first Egyptian
Gods to walk the earth were Osiris, the son of Nut (sky goddess), and Geb (Earth god), who was symbolized by the constellation of Orion, the brightest group of stars in the sky, with the greatest
number of stars above the 2nd magnitude. His sister Isis, daughter of Nut and Geb, was symbolized by the first most brightest single night-time star Sirius, of the nearby Canis Major constellation.

The Great Khufu Pyramid has 11 angles of defining points derived from the external faces and apex of the pyramid along with interior shafts extending through the pyramid to the exterior faces.
There is an invisible line called a meridian projected outside and above the pyramid which joins and aligns all of these angles.

In geometry, a triangle exhibiting two equal sides is known as an Isosceles triangle. An apex is the highest point of anything. Straight line alignment is a direct path without variation from one point
to another.

Mark Vidler has uniquely combined all of the above elements to demonstrate how apexes of specific sacred sites, mountains and geographical sites create and direct a straight line alignment
pointing to the most brilliant stars grouped in particular constellations following the sky path or meridians of the corresponding parallels on Earth. Vidler has also found a pattern of geometrical
Isosceles triangles expressed both in the brilliant star patterns in the sky and our world's most highest peaks and most significant ancient sacred sites. When the celestial grid is superimposed on
the Earth grid their geometric patterns correspond to each other as if they are reflecting one another or, in other words, mirroring each other. This is where Vidler deduces his Earth/Star mirror
theory. He uses the straight line alignments of strategic points, angles and apexes on Earth, sacred sites and monuments, and follows their direction into the sky to see where their path may lead.
He inevitably always finds the alignments point to the most brilliant stars in our night sky and that Isosceles triangles are displayed throughout the geometry expressed by both the layout of the
surrounding stars, and the corresponding geography or ancient structures here on Earth.
As above, so below.

With the use of a Sky Map computer program he has figured stellar coordinates and their relationship to specific terrestrial sites dating from 2450 BC up towards the 22nd century. He rigorously
plots his coordinates and often works within 1/50th of a degree in error. Sometimes out of curiosity he rotates the stellar precession 30 degrees forward and still finds the reflective Star/Mirror
relationship with constellations and sacred sites. He combines these findings with ancient myths, texts and murals, and presents the possibility that ancient peoples could predict celestial events of
significant value which, are important to humankind to understand as they may be precursors to either great sociological spiritual awareness, or intense cataclysmic cycles.

He forecasts the stellar precession ahead to the year 2000 AD and further in time to show synchronistic stellar events and star epochs of particular constellations mentioned in ancient
mythological texts. He focuses on Egypt and displays some ancient hieroglyphics and murals which, impressively show in detail, the actual alignments and celestial events to futuristically transpire
due to precession. One example of the precession of stars and ancient Egyptian myths is that of Osiris (Orion), having lost his penis because a giant Nile perch swallowed it up, thus, he was
unable to produce seed. However in the year 2080AD, the stars forming the dagger of Orion, being considered Osiris' phallus, become completely upright and erect enabling Osiris to produce
seed again for the first time in over 10,000 years and spread his seed over the Valley of the Kings. The ancient Pharaohs foreseeing this astronomical event, and believing they were direct
descendents of Osiris, prepared for their life after life by providing empty tombs and chambers buried underneath the sands of the Valley of the Kings. These empty Pharaoh's tombs have laid
patiently in time waiting to catch the seed of Osiris in the Pharaoh's hopes of being reborn again as a star.

Vidler's studies are global and he shows the congruency between other cultures' legends, sacred sites and geographical aspects to stellar alignments and triangular geometry. Chinese pyramids,
Mayan temples, North American Indian mounds and many other global sites reflect directly back to the sky's most brilliant stars. He shows how the ancient mound of Silbury Hill and the ancient
ditch and stone circle of Avebury, located in the Wiltshire District of England, depicts an eye and that the star Eltanim, the most brilliant star of the constellation of Draco and known as the eye of
the dragon, directly mirrors these sites during specific times of the stellar precession. He concludes that this is indeed a fact: that the Earth and sky mirror each other and the ancients knew this
and left behind a form of straight line communication to the stars to help direct us to intellectualize and realize our cosmic stellar heritage.

His use of graphics of murals, hieroglyphics, pyramids, geometry, geography and star maps are beneficial to the reader and Vidler has gone to some extreme lengths to exhibit his theory by
showing in detail important images of the Star/Mirror relationship. He shares quotes from ancient texts from various cultures and curiously they really seam to be prophetic in as much as conveying
futuristic stellar events as well as expressing an understanding of the underlying internal triangular geometry. Vidler expresses much enthusiasm for his work and reveres it as one of the most
extraordinary discoveries of our time.

Mark Vidler's work is highly controversial among some academia astronomers and archaeologists. Despite this somewhat hedge-fall, Vidler pursues his studies with great vigor and esteem and
continues to exhibit and demonstrate some rather uncanny synchronistic Star/Mirror relationships.

In his closing 'The Last Word ', he states, "… a series of numerical equations that cannot readily be attributed to serendipity. None the less I am at a loss to describe this union between Heaven
and Earth without a symbol for divinity appearing in the equation itself, and no such symbol exists in modern science. So perhaps the most successful way to communicate this enduring faith
intellectually is, after all, to build a great mountain under a brilliant star."

“There are rare persons in this world who see things others
don’t; persons who connect the dots of existence and
possess an instinctive talent for linking with kindred souls to
reveal otherwise invisible patterns and excavate hidden
truths. Such a person is Mary Sutherland. She is a natural-
born networker in all she does --- from her Burlington
Vortex Conferences and Sci’Fi Café to her public talks and
published books. Nowhere, however, is her gift for
perception more developed than in her latest title.“  Frank

"Mary Sutherland is not simply a reporter of all these phenomena;
she lives them! As readers expect, her studies extend beyond her
own experiences. The author and investigator often takes visitors
on tours containing an inter-dimensional vortex and hosts yearly
conferences and meet ups with many well known speakers on
anomalous phenomena."
What differentiates her book. Haunted Burlington Wisconsin , is that
Sutherland includes her explanations of the unknown realms and
phenomena with tips for heightening the reader's own psychic
awareness. Readers who complete this dizzying journey may find
they can no longer look at Burlington in exactly the same way.
Perhaps, then, this book itself may be considered a vortex. and
whether or not it actually transports you to another place, it will
certainly draw you in."
