Big Bend Area Resources:
The Stillwell Ranch south of Marathon, TX, near Big Bend National Park, where you can find agate, petrified wood, jasper, and other mineral specimens. You can go on a guided trip with Teri Smith, or go on your own if you wish. Open October to April.
Other rockhound websites. These folks are all my friends, great rockhunters and talented lapidaries. Their collections have been acquired over many years, and are really spectacular. And they’re great photographers, too!
Some other creative uses for agate, petrified wood, and other stones:
Patty Reagan who makes pictures out of rough rock.
And a couple of websites that have lists of “fee dig” rockhunting locations in Texas and all around the country. Although my links go directly to the list of fee dig sites, remember to look at the rest of these great websites:
ProspectingTexas.com which is a great resource about which gems, minerals, and rocks can be found in Texas, and where to go to find them yourself.
Geology.com which has lots of information for rockhunters.
Rocktumbler.com which has great blog and good products.
