Hello! New here.....


Recommended Posts

Hello!  I just recently got into rock hounding and metal detecting after moving to a San Diego county Indian reservation. I've always had an interest but now I'm trying to get invested in it a bit. I'm mainly going to be posting novice questions with a lot of "what kind of rock/mineral is this?" questions. Please bear with me lol

Welcome to the forum Jayman ... Questions are welcome but please be aware that sometimes pictures don't give enough info as to what the rock specimen really looks like. Streak tests help a lot in getting the right identification. Google streak tests for mineral identification if you are unfamiliar. In person identification is always the best. A local rock shop or even better a college/university geology department if you are having really tough id's. Learn a little basic geology specific to the area you are in as well. And most of all have fun finding all those 'pretty' rocks!
