Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fascinating treasure hunt awaits you in the Centennial State. Rockhounding Colorado takes you to nearly one hundred of the best rockhounding sites in the state. Search for amethyst and quartz at the Crystal Hill Mine. Check out the view at Douglas Pass while looking for leaf imprints and insect fossils. Or head to Saint Peters Dome to uncover green, white, and purple fluorite.

Veteran rockhounders William and Cora Kappele lend their more than thirty years of experience, outlining some of the best places to turn up rhodonite, agate, pyrite, and more. You¿ll get the inside dirt on the best seasons to hunt, what you¿ll find at each site, where to spend the night, and even special attractions to visit while you¿re in the area.

Look inside for: detailed descriptions of each site; information on what tools to bring; advice on what kind of vehicle is needed to get to each site; lists of BLM, county office, and National Forest contact information.

Whether you¿re a beginner or veteran collector, let Rockhounding Colorado be your guide on your next rockhounding adventure.
