I've been hunting agates for almost ten years. It is not only a hobby of mine, it is also a time of relaxation, and a time I spend speaking to my higher power. Please check out my Hubpage. What do you do to relax?
My grandfather was a rock hound. We always loved going with him. It was the relaxation of the hunt and the thrill of finding something beautiful.
Rock collecting is awesome! I've managed to collect a few, mainly minerals and fossils—quartz, amethyst, petrified wood and crinoid stems
cannot really call it collecting...if a rock hoollers at me "Pick me up" I pick it up...hubby may have sold everything we have owned fifty times over in the course of 19 moves but he has personally moved every one of my rocks big and small that I have had since I was a teenager! hes a good guy
I've always been interested in semi-precious stones. Unfortunately I'm not good at recognising them.
Sounds like a very interesting hobby. I've seen something about it on tv and looked pretty cool. I love rocks, crystals and gemstones.
To relax? Probably hanging out at HP when I get the chance
I like to hunt for geodes (I think that's the right spelling)....
When we were kids, my brothers and I would find big rocks like that and break them open to see the sparkly "diamonds" inside....It was like finding hidden treasure. haha
I carried one for 4 years. He wasn't hard to hunt down, he was lying on the street. I saved him from getting ran over. Herbie Stone.
Someday I would like to know mote about it, but yeah, I pick up interesting little stones and pebbles.
What a pleasant post. But yes, I enjoy rock hunting. I used to go quite frequently, though I was looking for rocks of a different kind: arrowheads.
Rocks no fossils yes. The fascination of holding something from millions of years ago in my hands. I usually go to Runswick Bay here in UK
I enjoy going out with my metal detector to relax... even if you never find anything, it's just a great way to unwind. The kids love hunting rocks while I'm out and, of course, since we live in Arkansas, a trip to the Crater of Diamonds is always a win-win. Even cooler is that the rangers and ranger assistants will identify your rocks! It is a great way to spend time with the family and doesn't break the bank!

Hi everyone,Just a question that I am hoping some of you will answer. I have seen SO many excellent hubs here on HP and find myself asking the following question ... do these folks do it for the money or because they love to write?!!I think I know the answer to this but want to ask anyway. Love...

Do you believe rocks can talk.In the Native American beliefs, everything is alive. The trees, the plants, dirt and even rocks are said to speak. Rocks are the oldest forms on earth. I often wonder what stories they do tell.
