Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether you are an experienced rockhound or prospector,

or just digging for the first time, with a simple rock

hammer and a little luck, you too can strike it rich or at

the very least, have fun trying.

From rubies, opals and gold, to emeralds, aquamarine and

diamonds, each guide offers state-by-state details on

more than 250 gems and minerals the United States has

to offer and the very affordable fee dig sites where

they can be found.

The authors offer easy-to-use information on the ins and

outs of fee dig mining, complete with locations, costs,

tips on technique, entertaining legends and important information

on everything from safety kits to where the nearest

restrooms are. Included are resources for use in identifying

finds, polishing stones and having them made into jewelry

and further pursuing this exciting, and possibly profitable,


Focusing on the four major regions of the United States,

each guide covers:

Gem & Mineral Sites: Locations of sites with directions

and maps, the gems and minerals to be found, hours, fees

and equipment needed. Also includes info on guide

services, additional attractions and features at each site,

local camping information and more.

Museums & Mine Tours: Where to visit commercial

and historical mines, as well as museums with exhibits of

gems and minerals (for help in learning what to look for).

Special Events & Tourist Information: Listings of

regional events involving gems and minerals, and sources

of general travel and tourism information for every state.

Completely revised & updated.
