People & Places

Beginners and world-class mineralogists alike find Arkansas a fascinating place. The life-long guest book at our house includes enthusiastic hobbyists, geology students, mine owners, university professors, serious professionals from other countries, and, we also count among our friends four people who have minerals named after them. How's that for making friends in the mineral world?

You too will meet people who share your interests, and rockhounding is more fun when you can be with others. The links along the side of the page will give you information on how to get started, places you can go, history about places we can no longer visit or collect, and people who join clubs to share their learning and participate in activities.
