Re: request advice

Chris,

I am not sure where you live but the best first step is to locate a rock & mineral club nearby and visit at one of their meetings. There are members from all walks of life and experience levels and surely someone will be able to steer you in the right direction. Also, the Smithsonian Institution's website is multimedia interactive and covers a lot of information on the formation of rocks & minerals. The site is:

http://www.mnh.si.edu/earth/main_frames.html.

Check it out, I think you will be amazed! Lastly, read as much as you can get your hands on. There are a number of fine books which cover the subject in easy to understand language. Bob's Rockshop highlights a number of them as well. Check out this link:

Good luck!
