Synopses & Reviews
The authors have compiled this guide to spread the collecting word about rocks and minerals and to share localities in New Mexico, the land of enchantment.
Maps and descriptions of mining districts and mineral sites by county.
It has been said that mineral and rock collecting is one of the most popular hobbies throughout the world and one that can be very rewarding and pleasurable for both the serious collector and for the weekend amateur. This guide was compiled to spread the collecting word and to share the localities in the "Land of Enchantment." It has a detailed listing of collectable New Mexico minerals, agates and petrified wood and includes over 125 collecting sites and how to get to them as well as 32 county maps indicating collecting locations. The authors have also noted access problems, such as private property, government lands and the necessity for four-wheel drive vehicles, and they have provided the reader with collecting and safety tips. The listings are divided by counties, then localities with the rocks and minerals that can be collected there. There is also a cross-referenced index of localities, maps and minerals.
