You Know You’re a Rockhound When…

Snowflake Obsidian Specimen
– You look down instead of up.
– Any rock, no matter how common, will raise your pulse.
– You see beauty in all rocks, even “Leaverites,” the ones you leave behind.
– Your family and friends just roll their eyes when you pick up yet another rock.
– You are willing to dig up a rock with a spoon, even if it means ruining the spoon.
– You have been known to visit urban rock piles and risk stares from people who are wondering why an old person is crawling around on a dirt pile.
– You are willing to pay excess baggage fees (international, yet) for a large yellow rock that looks like a loaf of bread.
– Your pockets are always filled with rocks and residual dirt.
– You often find pebbles in your shoes and even socks.
– You don’t mind dirt at all, even under your fingernails. That’s why soap and water exist.
– You get why rocks are so spiritual; you understand that rocks have been around since the beginning of earth (and quite possibly before) and deserve our respect.
– You believe that rocks are not just inert objects but living entities that will communicate to you if you are willing to “listen” to what they have to say.
– You see art in rock formations.
– You are willing to pay good money for a rock just because you like it and not because it’s valuable to others.
– Letting a rockhound loose at a gem and mineral show is like giving a foodaholic carte blanche at an “all-you-can-eat” buffet.
Obviously, the webmaster is an unabashed rockhound, who loves rocks in all forms, never having met an unlikable rock, even ones left behind.
On this site, you will see images of all kinds of rocks, specimens, minerals, and gems, both ordinary and unusual.
Some are valuable, but most are not – many are random discoveries at gem shows and the great outdoors.
