On June 25,2009 the real Peralta Stones go on public display at the Superstition Mountain/Lost Dutchman Museum in Apache Junction, Az.
These are thw only known set of stone maps to exist and their display at the Museum will give them the respect they deserve.
If your beliefs about the Stone Maps are not set in stone I would love to talk about them

Thanks for the heads up Phil! I hope that there will be plenty of audience. I assume you will go there, too. Would you mind posting a report on the exhibition please? This would be great!

Regards,

Christian

Hello all; the turnout for the Peralta Stone  Display was very good. A few dignataries and a lot of curious lookers and a few serious map fans. the conversation was good and the stone maps look great. As a few of the board members of the Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum Foundation even stated that this is where the maps should be.
Over the years there have been many interpretions of what the markings mean and for the most part they have been mistaken. The Peralta Stones are a set of maps ( the only set known to exist in the world) and to use them you must first orenient them so you know which direction to travel. Then you must start at the correct spot so ALL the clues are in the correct position when viewed from the place in the dirt  at which you are standing. If you can only identify a single clue  no matter how good it appears, if it is not in the proper  secquence you are not on the correct trail.
Here is a pic of one of the great clues which appear on the Priest Map

Can you identify it?

It was almost by accident that I became involved with the so called Peralta Stones. Stone Tablets with encrypted carvings, notes in Spanish and dated 1847 was all I knew about them. To my partner Rick Gwynne, they were thought to be maps leading to the gold mines of the Peralta family.  My old friend Chuck Crawford believed that he used them to locate the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine.  Others believe them to be a hoax. I had no other thoughts about them at the time. That would soon change. The treasure hunt of a lifetime was about to begin. It started in the library and on the internet. There are many opinions and stories about the Stone Maps and many very well informed  people who write about them on forums on line.  I have been reading them for years.  Many have found what they considered to be important clues resembling markings shown on the Maps. They have searched the mountains for things that looked like horses or daggers or priests and a few have been found. It looked to me as if many were using the Peralta Stones as an encrypted puzzle possibly with some parts missing.  This was troubling.
To me they were maps and all the information needed to use them successfully had been very skillfully carved into stone. You just had to know where to start.

Hello all, I am new to all this. My friend told me about them and said there were more maps that have been hidden or lost. Is there any truth to this? I've tried to look on line, but havent found anything. Any info would be appreciated.

                                                                                                 Thx, Fezzik01

Has anyone read the info that Tim King wrote on the stones? Its kinda interesting. Or, how about the stuff David Muise put on the comments after the Peralta Stones Map (part 1). If you have let me know what you think. Also, if you know of anyother legends/myths in Arizona, could you let me know. That would be awesome.

                                                                                              Thx, Fezzik01

Are the stone Maps Authentic or are they a Hoax? Undecided
