Links - Information for Rockhounds on the Internet

One of the great joys of this hobby is that it provides the opportunity for life long learning. Besides the joys of finding, seeing, touching and making things with rocks and minerals ~ there is the joy of learning more about them. There are many resources out there. Here is just a small sample to set you on your way.

If you would like to recommend a resource, your comments are most welcome. Send us an email with your suggestions. If you could briefly describe the resource and why you consider it to be of value, that would also be appreciated.
