Rockhounding in the Desert

I live in Arizona and there are so many places to find gemstones. We have decided that since the weather is getting cooler and we have a jeep, we are going to explore this state and finds us some gems. Our first excursion was Saddle Mountain. We had to drive down a far and very bumpy dirt road, but the payoff was worth it. We found an area full of agates, especially fire agates.  We got home with lots of stones. We plan to polish some and sell them in our Etsy shop. I am learning how to wrap stones and will sell them in the shop as well.  The exciting thing is that I get to do this with my husband, best friend and her fiancĂ©.
