One of a series of general interest publications on science topics, the booklet provides those interested in rock collecting with a nontechnical introduction to the subject. Following a section examining the nature and formation of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks, the booklet gives suggestions for starting a rock collection and using geologic maps to identify rocks. A discussion about sources of rock specimens, necessary collection equipment, and practical problems concerning the cataloging and storage of rock collections is followed by a list of eight additional hints for rock collectors.
