Arizona is rich in minerals from gold in the Superstition Mountains to turquoise in the foothills of the Hieroglyphic range. Gerry Blair's Rockhounding Arizona, formerly The Rockhound's Guide to Arizona covers 70 of the state's richest collecting areas. Hunt for facet grade garnets and amethyst, peridot, petrified wood and other minerals and gems.
This guide also covers places to view collections on display, advice on collecting and preparing, maps and directions, rock shops, pay areas, public lands and more. Fantastic as an introduction for beginners and guide and source-book for experts.
