Re: Texas area gem
Unfortunatly Texas is not a big "gemstone" state. You can hunt topaz in Mason County just north of Austin and petrafied palm wood aroung LaGrange, Texas. There is agate down at the Woodard ranch in Alpine. I would look up the articles that were published in the Rock and Gem in late 2005 and early 2006. They covered Texas in six articles with maps and what was found. Also check with the Austin Gem and Mineral Society for help or if you like fossils the Austin Paleo Society. I am with the Arlington Gem and Mineral Club and it is a challenge to find places to hunt.
Good hunting and KOR
