Re: where to go rock hunting / maine ?

Hello Craig;

I think that geodes and Maine do not go together. Geodes are found in limestone deposits, typically in the Mid-West. However, Maine is loaded with good minerals.

There are a number of mineral collector's clubs in Maine and the members always know where to go for good collecting. I would suggest you join one of them (There is a listing of clubs here on the Rock Shop - scroll down the main menu).

Second, you might want to get a copy of "A Collector's Guide to Maine Mineral Localities". It is very good, with maps, descriptions, etc. Contact Walter A. Anderson, State Geologist, at Maine Geological Survey, Dept. of Conservation, Station #22, Augusta ME 04333 or telephone 207-289-2211.

Rock On,
Don
