Whenever I'm out looking for gold, I always naturally get sidetracked by all the amazing specimens Arizona has to offer. Normally I'm the one that always gets all the gold equipment ready the night before, but yet I'm the first one to start finding rocks instead of the gold. Go figure! Guess its just my natural rockhounding ways! I always give advice to not dive into just finding the gold when out on a claim, but also take a minute to look at the rocks around you. You never know what you'll find or how it could lead you to the gold too!
The top is Arizona Peridot on Basalt. The lower one is Arizona Agate. Just thought I'd share these couple photos with ya'll. Hope ya'll will find some pretty specimens too! Happy prospecting!
