Great hobbyist publication

By bkwormonthenet

from Ohio

I am always inspired to examine, expand, or enliven my collection when reading this publication. It is definitely for the hobbyist (vs. for professional geologists), which makes it more accessible for the average enthusiast. Pictures are excellent.

Rock hound delight

By septarian nut

from northeast usa

The articles in Rock & Gem magazine vary widely in scope and depth of information. A great beginning hobbyist magazine having kid's pages,travel and different locale stories and more detailed information on rocks, minerals, and gems. Scientific and craft articles hold one's attention and create curiosity in the process.

Educational Theories of Rocks and Minerals

By Weezie

from Keystone State

Rock and Gem is a magazine well written with accurate facts and information for the professional as well as the weekend rock hobbyist. The many articles written have an array of various subjects concerning the many rocks and minerals found in this country and others. Most of the articles are written for adults but an interesting feature of this magazine is that some articles are written for the future rock collectors and explorers of the word. Many projects include in-depth directions and are written for geologists and hobbyists.
