One of the top agate collectors in the world is back with a revised and expanded edition of one of the premiere guides for collectors. The third edition of Collecting Rocks, Gems, and Minerals is thoroughly revised and expanded, with the details and direction needed to transform a frequent rock admirer into a savvy collector, and enhance the knowledge of even the most seasoned rockhound.

Author Patti Polk helps readers achieve this type of transformation by providing a reference filled with 'quick hit' nuggets of information; detailed photographs of specimens that are not only beautiful to admire but essential for understanding the defining characteristics of various types of rocks, gems and minerals; and easy-to-understand information about where to locate and identify the natural treasures you seek, and how to care for, use and sell them.

This book is arranged by category and color of stone, and:

  • Contains information about using and displaying lapidary materials
  • Features more than 800 intricate color photos
  • Includes a mineral identification chart, Mohs hardness scale, and a glossary of key rock collecting terminology
  • Identifies the color, common patterns, group a specimen belongs to, its hardness, where it is typically found and a general idea of value

Tap into the expertise and excitement of today's rock collecting community with Collecting, Rocks, Gems and Minerals, 3rd Ed., and dig into a new adventure.
