BONUS: Find Out About Rick's First Published Book 

"With over 35 years of collecting, teaching, and exploring under his belt, Rick has finally taken the time to write down what natural wonders come from Utah. In this collection of Utah’s Gems, are photographs and information about many of the rocks, minerals, fossils, and other gems found in Utah. Learn why some are more valuable than others."

Rick's book is at the publishers right now and we are hoping to have at least 1 copy at the rock shop for your viewing pleasure by Saturday! The pre-order should be availible online and in-store soon. The book is 322 pages long and includes hundreds of full color photographs to help identify what you find in Utah!
