I got so addicted to them that I plan to get certified soon in colored stones (Emeralds, Sapphires, Rubies, etc.)
I also go out and find a lot of stuff. Not far from where I live is an old silver mining district. Silver is so unappealing that I suspect there is still a considerable amount of silver left.
Over 1 hours drive is another old mining silver district in which one piece of silver was found that weighed about 2500 pounds!
Then there are the copper based minerals which provide so much color.
