Hello All,

I have been vacationing in Arizona and decided to start a thread encouraging you to share pictures of your crystal & rock collection or maybe ones you have found interesting in a museum or out and about on a walk. This thread isn’t meant for help with identification; there is another thread dedicated to that.

Hope ya’ll share now! :)

These rocks are all found in Arizona. What does your part of the world have?

My most interesting finds have begun with "I was just looking down when I saw ....".

The lady I met from the rock & mineral club said she took her grandson out rockhunting and the first thing he picked up was a dinosaur bone. Those little guys spot them quickly being so close to the ground. Hehe

Don't laugh, but where I live, when I look down, I see..... sand. What once was rock. Oceans of sand swirling around and sculpting out would-be rocks, getting them into their granularity.

:)) :-D :D

Michigan

I'm in Michigan and they just discovered sodalite in the upper peninsula (UP) for the first time. Sodalite glows under UV light and the piece they found were large and rounded, like a dragon's egg. So it looked like a glowing dragon's egg.

We also have the petoskey stone, coral, limestone, granite of several types, and I don't know what else. Fossils of coral and invertebrate seal life (like sponges) are pretty common.

I'd LOVE to go sift through raw dirt for minerals, especially ones that glow under UV light. I make LED lights for a hobby and I can make some neat displays with the crystals and UV LED. Some of the things I made: https://ibb.co/album/c3yWFa

therium , that is very interesting. Do you have any pictures of the stones? I looked up the petoskey stone and it has so much historical interest. Michigan must have been under an ocean. There’s been so many Earth changes and stones like these capture my wonder about how it will continually change.
