  • Floridas Geological Treasures

    Florida is a land of geological wonders, from its little-known earthquake history to the rich new fossil hunting grounds constantly being revealed by commercial development and quarrying activity. Much more than a fashionable resort or retirement destination. Florida ranks fifth in mineral production among all the United States. Florida's surprising mineral wealth ranges from commercial mines to coral islands; from valuable industrial metals like zirconium and titanium to such collectible treasures as chalcedony, ivory, petrified wood, and stunning crystals. You can gather Florida's mineral riches from the waters of the state's 34 major rivers, or find them waiting in the darkness of its 375 dry caves. Alongside a wondrous number of fossil remnants of such prehistoric creatures as jaguar, tapir, and mammoth, you will unearth arrowheads, stone knives, and other relics of the tools early man hunted them with. This book will tell you where to collect every type of mineral and fossil in Florida, and explain how they got there. Maps of the collecting areas, tips on carving, collecting, tools, and techniques for identifying and preserving your finds will help you prepare to uncover the remarkable variety, beauty, and wealth of Florida's geological treasures. Iris Tracy Comfort is the author of eight previous works of fiction and nonfiction, including two other books about rocks and minerals. She has worked as a reporter and scriptwriter, and has published numerous magazine articles and syndicated features. A frequent lecturer and seminar teacher on writing, she lives in Orlando, Florida.

  • Rockhounding Utah

    Author William A. Kappele shows you the grandeur of Utah's exposed formations, its canyon walls etched with fossils, and the spires and arches of the Needles District in Canyonlands National Park. Each description includes concise information on the material to be found there, the tools to bring, the best season to visit, the vehicle to drive, or when a remote find suggests it's time to lace up the hiking boots. Readers will glean new insights into the obsidian of the Black Rock sites, jasper at Hell's Backbone, petrified wood at Bullfrog Turnoff, and fossils of sea lillies along the Wasatch Range. May your journeys be fruitful and your bag be heavy on the way home. Somewhere in that bag among your rocks, we hope you haven't forgotten your copy of Rockhounding Utah.

  • Roadside Kansas : A Travelers Guide to Its Geology and Landmarks by Rex C. Buchanan

    Roadside Kansas, the perfect glove-compartment companion, is a guide to the geology, natural resources, and landscapes along nine of the state's major highways. Covering more than 2,600 miles, Buchanan and McCauley have provided mile-by-mile descriptions of interesting features, both contemporary and historical, to be seen all across the state. The information is organized by highway, so that modern-day explorers can follow the road logs easily, learning about the land they travel through.

    Of the tradition of roadside geologic descriptions, Buchanan and McCauley write: "In some ways highways provide convenient access to geology because roads often cut through hills, exposing formations never seen before. . . . For many geologist, road construction is an occasion akin to Christmas or the Fourth of July."

    The nine highways, which criss-cross Kansas, were chosen for a variety of reasons. Some, like I-70, I-35, and the Kansas Turnpike, carry heavy traffic; some, like U.S. Highways 69 and 36, are the main highways in various parts of the state; others, like U.S. Highways 160 and 83, cut through some of the state's most interesting geology; and one, U.S. Highway 56, was picked because of its history--the road parallels the historic Santa Fe Trail for much of its route, passing the site of old forts and Indian battles.

    This unique guidebook combines geological, historical, and cultural information with more than 100 photographs, drawings, and maps. Presented in a refreshingly nontechnical way, it is sure to appeal to tourist and native Kansas alike.

  • Roadside Geology of Virginia

    The geologic features seen in Virginia are as varied as any in the country. Indeed, in 1985 the highway east of Natural Bridge was identified as the most geologically interesting 24 kilometers of roadway in the southeastern United States and one of the four most interesting in the country. In addition to Natural Bridge, you can see caverns still developing their unique architecture, geologic structures developed at the end of the Paleozoic era, fossils of Paleozoic life, preserved beaches from late Precambrian shores, and more, all in a single stretch of highway.

  • Deluxe Moh's Mineral Hardness Pick Set

    The Deluxe Moh's Hardness Pick Set now comes in two case types. The wooden case is small enough to carry and the top screws into the base to make a perfect desk stand. The plastic case is longer but the thinner size makes it easier to carry in your field tool set.

    Hardness is an important and quantifiable physical characteristic of a mineral and in your effort to identify an unknown mineral, the hardness, if known, combined with other properties, can narrow your search to just a handful of possibilities. Simply scratch a smooth surface of your unknown mineral with the picks of various indicated hardness. As an example, if a No. 5 pick scratches the mineral, but a No. 4 pick does not, then your mineral hardness is 4.5. Then compare this against a table of minerals listing hardness values to aid in identifying the unknown mineral.
    The Deluxe Mohs' Hardness Pick Set from Mineralab is unique in that, unlike other mineral hardness test tool that use minerals or crystal points, Mineralab picks are made of metals and alloys of hardness values equal to 2 through 9 on Mohs hardness scale. Because the picks are made of metal, they are easily ground to sharp points which will not break off and which can be easily sharpened.

    What is included in the Mineralab's Deluxe Mohs' Hardness Pick Set?

    • Four double-ended picks with eight points comprising 2 and 3, 4 and 5,
      6 and 7, 8 and 9 on Mohs’ hardness scale.

    • High quality brass pinch vises.

    • A glass plate (hardness of about 5.5) which, when scratched,
      quickly distinguishes hard from soft minerals.

    • A second hardness plate with a hardness value of 3.5.

    • A streak plate for testing a mineral’s streak color.

    • A magnet to test magnetic rocks such as magnetite and pyrrhotite.

    • A 100 grit polishing stone to keep the points sharp.

    • An attractive, mahogany-finished and compact wooden case.

    • Complete usage instructions.


    Other Features:

    • All points are stamped with the indicated hardness value, and each double-ended
      pick body is color coded for quickly finding the desired pick.

    • Hardness points can be easily and inexpensively replaced without having to
      replace the pick bodies.

    • Compact. The wooden storage case is only 7" tall by 2.5" wide.

    • Also use to test hardness of various materials encountered in the industrial,
      excavation, and archeological fields.

    • 1 Year Warranty
    If you are ordering only a Deluxe Moh's Hardness Pick Set you can save money on shipping by choosing USPS Priority Mail. We will use a USPS Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box and I'll adjust your total to pass the savings back to you.
