Mineral Collecting      Resources       Collectable Minerals       Articles       Rock Shows & Events

The mineral specimens shown in the photos are from personal collections, museums, rock shows and anyplace else I stumbled across that will let me photograph their minerals.

Please read the copyright info prior to downloading photos.

On the Rock & Mineral section of TravelingInThe USA.com  I share my thoughts on geology and  collecting minerals.  When it comes to my knowledge of Geology and Mineralogy, I am learning; I am no expert!  Part of my process of learning about Minerals is to make a written record. If I write down what I have studied perhaps some of the information will stick in my brain. As I am learning; what I write might be wrong or incomplete so I provide links to more authoritative sources. Even if you are not that interested in Minerals, browse here a little. I share with you photos from personal collections, museums and rock shows; you might just become a rock collector yourself.
