What is your personal history with rock hounding/mineralogy/fossil collecting?

Currently have panned some garnet out of a not-to-be-expected stream. Some gold too. Still searching for the origin of the garnet.

What are you hoping to get out of this meetup?

Experience, more knowledge of gem hunting, comaraderie of others who enjoy the same. Support to keep at it even when it looks hopeless in finding anything.

Are you comfortable sharing your own knowledge to enrich the meetup experience for all membersfrom novice to expert?

I don't have much knowledge to add, appetite for curiosity and stanima to keep at it. Share what I can if it'll be usefull.


Avid outdoor recreating type person. Introduced to rockhounding/ gem collecting back in the early 90's w/a trip to Deer Hill in Maine. Backpack, hunt, fish, camp, anything outdoors. So rockhounding is second nature. Always watching the ground.
