Rockhounding in Indiana (RM-05)
Rockhounding is a rapidly growing hobby. It captivates people of all ages. Rockhounds, an appropriate name for amateur geologists, are enthusiastic collectors of rocks, minerals, and fossils. Many belong to clubs where they meet visiting scientists, share geologic information, swap collecting stories, and trade surplus specimens.

Almost any exposure of bedrock--road cut, railroad cut, streambed, or quarry--is worthy of attention and the source of many beautiful specimens. If rockhounding gets in your blood, you'll walk streambeds, seek abandoned quarries and bedrock exposures, grub in old mine dumps, break thousands of rocks, and love every minute of it!
