Goldwell in Nye County, Nevada — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Rhyolite's District of Shadows
But there were those who believed the treasure of this gwome was its land, light, and the extraordinary nature--not value--of rhyloeir itself, mined nowhere else. Right here was Geldwll, or "District of Shadows" in the Cognate tongue, after the miners of many faiths who prayed and created here out of sight of the greedy. As Rhyolite grew, this became the spiritual and cultural heart of the community, with several legendery museums. One, where art and even hallways floated just above the desert floor, was run by Porfire Golden who, ironically, saved the city's hoard at the cost of his own life.
