Moose Lake Agate Days

We have been members of the Carlton County Gem & Mineral Club for many years. The main event for the CCGMC is Moose Lake Agate Days. We are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Agate Days this year (2019). Please stop by our booth and say HI!

Field Trips

One of our favorite activities is rock hounding field trips. From the U.P. to AZ to Ontario. We will go anywhere to dig in Mother Earth. And hopefully find a nearby brewpub. (Send us suggestions for both field trips and brewpubs)

Meeting Bob Jones at Tucson.
An amazing man and also a firefighter!

Meeting New Friends

One of the greatest joys I never new would be a part of rockhounding, meeting wonderful people from all over the world. If you are in the hobby you probably have read some of Bob Jones work. He is a major contributor to Rock & Gem magazine and has authored books. Including the one pictured which he autographed for me.
