I love gemstones, minerals, and fossils (especially megalodon and other shark teeth). Along with gardening, they've recently become an interest of mine. Any one else have the same interest? Any spots in California you're willing to share about? Tips?
I know gold is everywhere, where and how to look for it, however, it's on the backburner for me (not that I wouldn't love to find some gold). There's a garnet spot nearby I have yet to go to and I know there is Shark Tooth Hill in Bakersfield, however that's about $70 per person, a bit of a drive, and too much digging in hard dirt for me. I don't mind digging, but that's a little intense for me at this point in time. I might just be outta luck considering my location. If only I lived in North Carolina, I could walk down river beds and find teeth
