A complete guide to finding, collecting, and preparing the state's gems and minerals.
Authors William A. Kappele and Gary Warren guide you to the best sites in Utah for finding the rocks, gems, and minerals you want-from exposed formations and canyon walls etched with fossils, to the spires and arches of the Needles District in Canyonlands National Park. Each site description includes concise information on the types of materials you'll find there, the tools to bring, the best season to visit, and when to lace up the hiking boots for exploring the treasures of a remote site. Rockhounds will glean new insight into the obsidian of the Black Rock sites, Septarian nodules of Mount Carmel, the agate of Yellow Cat Flat, and the Apache tears of Obsidian Hill.
