Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A complete guide to finding and collecting the states gems and minerals

Rockhounding Nevada is a must-have book for anyone interested in collecting rocks, minerals, fossils, and gems in the Silver State. Fully up to date with GPS coordinates for more than 100 collecting locales, it covers popular and widely known fee-dig operations as well as four-wheel-drive adventures into the desert and long winding drives through the mountains. The result is a complete and accurate guide to the states gem and mineral deposits.

The author—a veteran rockhounder in the West with more than forty years of experience—concisely describes the best places to locate agate, opal, jasper, fossils, fluorescent minerals, obsidian, chalcedony, wonderstone, malachite, petrified wood, limb casts, and much more.

Book News Annotation:

Kappele, a rockhound, fossil collector, gem hunter, and author of other rockhounding guides, provides a guide for those interested in collecting rocks, minerals, fossils, and gems in Nevada. He lists 105 sites for finding agate, opal, jasper, fluorescent minerals, obsidian, chalcedony, wonderstone, malachite, petrified wood, limb casts, and other rocks, with maps and information on landmarks, type of vehicle needed to get to the site, elevation, best season, land managers, tools, special attractions, accommodations, safety tips, etiquette, and sites where rockhounding is prohibited. Some b&w photos are included. This edition adds new sites and GPS coordinates for locations and removes sites that are closed to collecting.
