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!
Roadside Geology of Minnesota
You may have heard that Minnesota’s ten thousand lakes are the hoofprints of Paul Bunyan’s big blue ox, Babe. “Don’t you believe it!” writes author Dick Ojakangas. Though the lakes, which formed at the end of the most recent ice age, may be Minnesota’s most famous features, the glaciated countryside disguises a much longer history of volcanoes and plate collisions—not surprising when you learn that Minnesota was at the active edge of the fledgling North American continent for several billion years.
Roadside Geology of Minnesota steers you over glacial moraines and till plains to some of the state’s unparalleled geologic features, such as the Morton Gneiss, once thought to be the oldest rock on Earth; the St. Peter Sandstone, one of the purest sandstones
in the world; the banded iron-formation, the source of iron for the Great Lakes steel industry; and the ancient shorelines of Glacial Lake Agassiz, one of the largest glacial lakes ever to have existed in North America. The book’s introduction presents an overview of Minnesota’s geologic history, and forty-two road guides discuss the landforms and rocks visible from a car window and at nearby waysides and parks, including Pipestone National Monument, Grand Portage National Monument, and Voyageurs National Park. Richard W. Ojakangas. 398 pgs., 6 x 9, paperback

The Valley 20 oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer is similar in weight, and quality, to the Estwing 22oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer. It is a smaller rock pick than all the Estwing rock picks except the Estwing 14 oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer. It has a square faced striking surface, larger than the Estwing rock picks, on one end and a pointed pick tip on the other. Made in China but it's high quality. We've sold over 2100 and have only had one returned for a broken tip. (The hammer had what looked like vice marks on it so I suspect the damage was artificially introduced.). This Valley 20 oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer is a great tool for the professional, student, or recreational geologist and a great rock hammer for rockhounds. It will last you a life time.
