Rocks & Minerals Information
Reference books are just as important in rock / mineral / fossil hobby as the rock specimens themselves. They offer insight on the history of the location as well as other specimens found in the area. The Berks Mineralogical Society uses these guides for researching locations and identifying rocks, mineral, etc. If the club is to visit a site mentioned in the books, the club makes sure that it has proper permission to visit that site.
