Collecting Rocks, Gems & Minerals: Easy Identification - Values - Lapidary Uses

 
This book focuses on the areas of collecting, identifying and determining the worth of rocks, minerals and gemstones; how and where collectors can acquire them; and, what they can do with them once excavated. 
 
Whereas most rock books require the reader to have a background in geology to find the appropriate chapter, this title is organized by visual characteristics such as color, texture, crystal shape, etc., rather than by chemical composition. With 1,000 beautiful color pictures, readers can see the visual detail they need to identify their rocks. 
 
About the Author: Patti Polk has been collecting rocks for more than 20 years. A skilled lapidary artist, Polk contributes articles to gem and mineral club publications such as Rock & Gem magazine and frequently acts as a trail guide for visitors to the Sedona, Arizona, area.
