Whether they are part of an anciant pyramid or under your very feet, they are always close by. Once you learn more about them, you won't be able to resist a collection of your own!

This book focuses on rocks and has a brief discussion of volcanoes, igneous rocks, crystals of the Moh's Scale of Hardness, sedimentary rocks, limestone, mountain building, metamorphic rock, and how to start a rock collection.

  • Golden Pocket Guide Rocks, Gems, and Minerals

    Includes information on collecting and identifying minerals, and sections on metallic, nonmetallic, gem and rock-forming minerals, and on igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks.

    This is a great little pocket guide to rocks and minerals. It uses color drawings to illustrate the rocks and minerals which I find is far more handy that pictures of museum quality specimens. Rocks and minerals in the field often don't know what they're supposed to look like so they are more average than those museum exhibits!

  • Estwing Leather Sheath for Pointed Tip Rock Hammers #3

    Due to limited product on hand: Limit One (1) per customer.

    Due to increasing cost of leather it is no longer cost effective to manufacture the leather sheaths.

    Estwing has replaced the leather sheath with nylon sheaths manufactured with the same basic design.

    Estwing Leather Sheath for Pointed Tip Rock Hammers

    New model. The sheath now has a "relaxed fit" making it easier to use in the field as well as working with more hammers.

    Fits Estwing Pointed Tip Rock Hammers. Now fits the Estwing Supreme 24oz Big Face Pointed Tip Rock Hammer and the Valley Soft-Touch 20oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer.

    Leather snap case for the Estwing 24 oz, 22 oz, 13 oz, and 14 oz Rock Picks. Difficult to use until well broken in. We recommend the Gfeller Casemakers sheaths and holsters, especially the holsters. The Gfeller sheaths are sized better and their also pre-shaped to fit the hammers.

     

    (I placed this on the site when the sheathshad a tight fit. It's still handy information." Hint: to make it easier to use this sheath use products like Vaseline, mink oil, saddle soap and even soap to help break it in. If you've recently broken in a baseball glove you may have some Rawlings Glovolium and Easton Glove oil around. Don't over do it. Do a web search on breaking in a baseball glove to find out how they do it.

     

    I still don't recommend using the Estwing Leather Sheaths in any case. I sell them because some customers insist on having a sheath to protect things from the hammers. They're OK for storage but Amateur Geologist never carries one into the field. Use a holster.

    Did I mention that these sheaths are just too difficult to use.
