Re: is mineral collecting a dying hobby?
Old rockhounds never die.. they simply erode away.
yes, environmental overzealousness is destroying the hobby. I've sen boy scout troops forced to put back the rocks they collected for their merit badges. Unreasonable environmentalism is to blame. read the nature conservancy and sierra clubs manifestos... they want to force George Orwell's 1984 scenario on the whole US.
