about

Updated and revised to reflect the latest information on this alluring state of extremes, Rockhounding Arizona includes more than seventy of Arizona's best rockhounding sites and their emblematic activities, from jasper hunting in the historic mining district near Bagdad to searching for gold in the Superstition Mountains and digging for turquoise at the foot of the Hieroglyphic Range. Rockhounding Arizona covers popular and commercial sites as well as little-known areas. It describes where to view mineral specimens and prehistoric artifacts at Grand Canyon and Petrified Forest national parks, as well as on tribal lands. Brimming with advice on collecting and preparing gems and minerals, this handy reference also includes maps, and directions to each site as well as to museums, rock shops, and major tracts of public land. For the beginner, it offers a complete introduction to this many-faceted hobby. For the expert, it is an outstanding guide and sourcebook.
Gerry Blair has roamed the Arizona outback for almost three-quarters of a century, spending much of that time rockhounding. He is a contributing editor for Rock and Gem Magazine and is considered one of the most experienced and knowledgeable rockhounds in Arizona.
