The enthusiastic collector of rocks and minerals enjoys and practices a most interesting hobby. Nature has provided a free source of materials in many different localities, and the Midwest is no exception to this bounty. Success in finding a rare rock or mineral is limited only by the skill and perseverance of the collector. The natural beauty of many mineral, rock, and fossil specimens makes finding them a stirring experience. The value and rarity of these examples of nature's wealth makes the search for them a stimulating and profitable adventure.
