New England is one of the best regions in the country for rockhounds to hunt for minerals, gems, and fossils.

The complex geology of the region hosts a stunning variety of material from gold-bearing placers to fossiliferous limestone; from gem-bearing pegmatites to rocks containing some of the rarest minerals on Earth.

This book provides detailed directions and GPS coordinates to the best sites with valuable tips on what to tools to bring and how to conduct your search.

Comprehensive lists of minerals or fossils for each site and excellent color photos will help you know what to look for and to identify what you've found.

Information on clubs, rock shops, museums, and special attractions are provided.

Written by a collector with over 35 years of experience, Rockhounding New England is the first comprehensive rock and mineral collecting guide to New England and a must-have for anyone interested in collecting their own minerals, gems, and fossils in the region.
