Re: Where do I find good rockhunting sites for Texas?

Jordan,
Your best bet is to join one of the 5 gem and mineral clubs in the area or the Dallas Paleo Society if you like fossils. I am with the Arlington Gem and Mineral Club and our web site is agemclub.org. There is the Dalas Gem, Oak Cliff Gem, Fort Worth Gem and Pleasant Oaks Gem and Mineral club or society. There are several other clubs in the area as Waco, Austin, Denison, Temple, Terrel. Also Bob's has a list of Texas clubs as well. Fossils and pyrite are all you are going to find around here. There is petrified palm wood in East Texas, crynoids at Lambart ranch, agate in Alpine. So join a club and then you get to go on field trips to alot of these areas. It the best way to hunt. I invite you to our meeting on Jan. 8, 2008, and check out our facilities. Go to the web site for details.
