Rocks and Minerals-Localities

 Ever wonder what rocks or minerals come from your state or country?

Click on the links above to find out!

I am slowing working through all the states and several countries.

The state pages are written with a view towards rockhounding or opportunities to collect rocks and minerals.

You can view Rockhounding Rules in the United States here:

I have not researched Rockhounding Rules in other countries, I have just presented information on rocks found in other countries for your educational purposes.

I would strongly suggest that you do your own research before picking up rocks, fossils, etc. anywhere!


You can also find out what is your state's gemstone, mineral or fossil here: State Gemstone, Mineral or Fossil.


If you want more information on a particular rock see our List of Rocks and Minerals.
