The American Geode gem and mineral show news wire provides real-time geology and paleontology news, alongside gem, mineral, jewelry and fossil show announcements. A source of rockhounding tips, and check-lists to follow before each rockhounding trip, American Geode is a source for rockhounding vitals and essentials. We are a source of geodes, minerals, gems, and fossils for collectors, academics in geology and paleontology, museums, and even interior design professionals."
