Welcome to America's Best Rockhounding Website

Gator Girl Rocks is America's best rockhounding resource.  Welcome.  I'm Zoe Tolbert, the chief adventurologist and founder of Gator Girl Rocks.  This website provides thousands of rockhounding resources for rock, mineral, gemstone, and fossil collectors and includes rockhounding information for every state in America.

That's me - in 2006 - in Western Utah searching the Wheeler shale formation for cambrian era trilobite fossils (approximately 505 million years old)

The State-by-State section provides rockhound information about rocks, minerals, gemstones, fossils, and meteorites as well as rockhounding resources, books, museums, neat places to visit, and recreational rockhounding sites for every state in America.

The Resources section provides an extensive collection of useful rockhounding resources, including my Best Ever Guides, a Rockhound Glossary, the most complete information about official state rocks, gems, minerals, fossils, and dinosaurs anywhere, and additional selected websites for more helpful information.

The Law section provides an extraordinary summary of American Rockhounding Law, prepared by America's leading expert on rockhounding law.

Charity Rocks! is where I sell some of my rock, gemstone, mineral, and fossil specimens to benefit some very fine and worthwhile charitable organizations.  All of the profits - every penny - goes to charity.

The Books & Gear section is a terrific resource to identify (and purchase) useful rockhounding books and gear for rockhounders through the Gator Girl Rocks Amazon Store site.  

I also have a Wildlife section that includes pictures of some of the wildlife I've come across while rockhounding and, of course, there is the Chief Adventurologist's Blog where you can join me for a virtual rockhound adventure.

If you have suggestions or comments, please feel free to contact me.

Go make a memory.  Enjoy.
