Florida's "Bone Valley" region is rich in uranium-bearing phosphate deposits, as well as prehistoric animal bones, and other fossils. The town of Mulberry is home to The Mulberry Phosphate Mining Museum. Located off State Road 37 in downtown Mulberry, the museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The phone number is 941-425-2835.

There is a large pile of land pebble phosphate beside the museum which visitors are free to sort through.
Goodies include prehistoric shark's teeth and other fossils. The pile is only slightly radioactive.
