Identifying your Specimen
Post pictures of the specimen in question here. A blurry picture with poor lighting will make identification very difficult so please try your best to post a decent picture. Thanks!

Mineral of the Month
Mineral of the Month
This mineral, chosen at random, is RHL's mineral topic of the month. Post pictures from your own collection, ask questions, or comment about it in this section. Most if not all the introductory information I post on each "Mineral of the Month" is copied from Wikipedia articles about the mineral. A link to the Wikipedia article will always be supplied.

North Carolina
North Carolina
This section is organized by the county. Keeping the locality generalized to the county will allow members to post their prized specimens without giving away the location of their honey holes. If you have no problem with revealing exact locality feel free to be as specific as possible. Although, if you do not want other rockhounds digging at your location, list only the county. When posting a new county please only put the name of the county in the subject line. Subsequent specimens with the same county should be added to the same county thread if it has already been created.

Although crystals can be found in nature, with a little effort we also have the ability to grow beautiful crystals at home. Here's where you can find out just how it's done.

Anything to do with quartz. It isn't obvious what my favorite mineral is, is it?. There are so many varieties, habits, and growth forms and there is much still to learn.
