Re: kansas rock hounds

I'm in Lawrence, and there is very little besides fossils. For lapidary, there is some jasper and quartzite in gravel pits along rivers, or some larger pink/purple quatrzite in some fields (see the photo gallery). There is also a bit of petrified wood, albeit mostly small and uniformly brown. There is flint with some color called Mozarkite, and there is a type of lace agate with an interesting red line called Missouri Lace agate or Missouri red Line agate. For minerals you can go north for iron concretions, or south for selenite.

If you will be near Lawrence you would be welcome to visit and see my personal stockpile of rock, which has grown past the 2 ton mark - but it is not local material. Or if you want to meet perodically to do lapidary projects, I could offer some free lessons.
