The famous Estwing Geo/Paleo Pick GP100 has made a grand reentry after being out of production for several years. The handle has been beefed up to make the unit even stronger. It is 25 inches long with a total weight of 3 pounds. Painted steel with a soft vinyl grip. The light weight but great strength of this makes it a great field tool for any geologist or rockhound.
Not only is this a great digging tool but I use mine to help me navigate the steep slopes of mine tailings. Jab the tip in and pull yourself up then use the hoe end to cut a quick shelf to work from.
This packet contains 5 maps (17 1/2 X 23) printed on both sides. The maps divide the state into four sections and show the location of 47 gems in addition to gold and silver. The maps featured were chosen due to their clarity in spite of being printed in 1882, 1936 and 1900. This package is a must for both the serious or the part time rock hound.
