Description


New Mexico ranks among the best mineral and fossil collecting regions in the nation and is a destination for rockhounds the world over. This county-by-county guide describes where to go and what you'll find at more than 150 mineral, rock, gemstone, or fossil collecting sites in the Land of Enchantment. You'll learn where to look for smithsonite at Magdalena's Kelly Mine, quartz "diamonds" in the bluffs of the Pecos River, and Pennsylvanian marine fossils in the limestone cliffs of Jemez Canyon. Also included are descriptions of eleven museums and eight national or state parks of geological paleontological, or archaeological interest.
