As many of you know, I am an avid agate collector, overall rockhound, and author of three best-selling books on the world of rock, gem, and mineral collecting. I have just recently overhauled my website to make it more up-to-date and user friendly for all my friends and visitors. I have kept my personal agates gallery open for fun and education, and streamlined my store with original new products and simplified shopping categories.
My intention with this blog is to inform, educate, and share my enthusiasm for beautiful agates and minerals with other collectors and rockhounds. I hope to create something fun and useful for everyone – from seasoned old-timers to brand new collectors and pebble pups. I will be posting as often as I can and I will be available to answer questions as time permits. I plan to cover many topics over time and may periodically include excerpts from my books on specific subjects. I want to show examples of many types of collectible rocks, gems, and minerals and encourage others to share their own personal rocks too – they don’t have to be the most spectacular or expensive rocks, just whatever you personally like to collect for yourself and would like to share with the world. It’s all about the fun and joy of collecting rocks, whatever you reason for collecting them might be.
I hope you enjoy you enjoy the blog and new website – and, as always, ROCK ON!
