THE HOBBY OF THE ROCKHOUND has many different
aspects. We are
collectors of minerals and fossils and craftsmen
in many types of lapidary arts.
Knowledge, skill, and areas of interest are the
rock hound’s choice. Some of us
are purists, who insist on doing all of our
collecting and work in specialized fields;
others go for variety and buy or trade for much of
our collections. Some of us
also enjoy showing our collections; competing with
others or just showing for the
pleasure it gives others or ourselves. Perhaps we
can help you determine or expand
your interest in rocks and the earth sciences.
AGMS was formed in the mid to
late 1950's just for this reason.
