I\’m new to the world of gemology.i hope gain knowledge of identifying rocks and minerals where I live in Montana. I\’ve started to make jewelry and would like to be certain about the identifying what kinds of rocks I use
Knowledge comes with schooling and experience.
I would suggest getting a book about Montana’s rocks and gemstones. I bought one years ago for Washington in it turned me into a rock hound. Not only does it have pictures of the types of rocks, but it has maps of where you can find certain deposits.
