Quick reference guide for rock hounds to identify and learn about the rocks, gems, and minerals that they are looking to collect. Designed for easy use and fast response without information overload.
This App gives you information and pictures of the most common types of samples collected, such as Garnets, Agates, Geodes. It is not cluttered with information about samples that rock hounds are not interested in. Who is looking for Allanite or Manganbabingtonite?

If you have an iPhone, you may be interested in the app "RockHound", which contains GPS data of collection sites and what you will find there, along with this module for identification. The RockHound app will not work on the iPod Touch, since the GPS data is critical for its use.
More information about Rocks and Gems. Included support for more devices as well as orientation changes to view in Portrait or Landscape. Added a dedicated Favorites section so you can just view the ones you have marked as a Favorite.

Don't buy it
Completely worthless. Nothing more than poorly worded, flowery descriptions, that can be found most anywhere else on the internet. Sure $0.99 is not much, but it's not worth $0.09!
I love it!!!
I love this app!! I love learning about rocks and minarals!!!!!!
A very small beginning.....
OK people, you may be on "Easy St.", but with THIS app you've barely begun. So where is the other 95% of what we need in such an app??? You have at least begun your work with quality and sincerity (unlike that vampire Darren Gates), but pull out Melody's books or even better "The Book Of Stones" by Robert Simmons & Naisha Ahsian ..... and "Crystal Co-Creators" by Dorothy Roeder to see what this app COULD be and SHOULD be!!!!! Obviously these books are metaphysical in nature and if you have yet achieved any degree of awareness, then you'd know that you can't just ignore this knowledge/wisdom when dealing with crystals and gemstones. It is simply intrinsic to this topic. Such an app is critically necessary for so many of us and there is nothing of such equivalent quality and thoroughness in The App Store". Please truly consider this request! But, thank you for this effort!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
