Rocky Old Man,
Being from the midwest myself I totally understand about being able to find just about anything. The variety of material found is incredible. The Canadian Shield region is some of the oldest rock formations on this planet. And with the help of the glacial periods we don't have to go far to find samples of that rock right here in the midwest. I have found some very interesting pieces. Some, I am told by a state geologist, go back as far as a couple of billion years. I have a couple of pieces of clear quartz that are saturated with red hematite inclusions that appear to float through the rock just like blood through your veins. They actually look like blood cells. I offered up the sample I brought to him to identify as a gift and he couldn't have been happier. He said he had never seen anything like it before and that it would make a nice addition to his collection. We all would like to go to the famous rock locations, but sometimes all that is needed is to just look in your own back yard.
