Pointed-tip rock hammers

Pointed-tip rock hammers, officially called rock picks, are used by geologist and rockhounds when working with "hard rock". Hard rock is, well, hard. Granitic, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks are all part of the hard rock family. Here the crystalline structure is tightly bound and cracking the rock open breaks apart the crystals. Hard rock mining is when the prospector went after the gold in seams in this hard rock. Geologist and rockhounds crack open a rock to see what the rock looks inside rather than the weathered outer surface of the rock which often appears totally different than the real rock type. The pointed-tip rock pick is also the rock hammer that is used when digging mineral samples out of hard rock.

We have a wide selection from Estwing, Valley, and other manufacturers to fit every need.
