The ultimate geeky collection right up there with stamps, *drumrolls* rock collecting! Who has one? :o I have a lot of semi-precious stones and lots of quartz as well as other assortments in the rock family. I have rocks in the shape of different things, polished rocks, dyed rockes, and even a little vial of gold. (just tiny specks)

We have a very nice rock collection, and a large fossil collection too. :D

I went through a period of being super hooked on specimens from ebay. Here's one of my favorite sellers:

Anyway, I mainly started out buying for my children cause we homeschool, but it didn't take much to get addicted.

Here's another link: http://www.greatsouth.net/

We purchased many, many fossils from them. Let me know if you want more sources, and I'll try to find all the business cards people sent me.
