Quartzsite is a paradise for rock hounds, with agates, quartz, limonite cubes and even gold found in the area.

Quartzsite has been a rock hound Mecca since the 1960’s and any true rock hound will want to make the trip at least once in their lifetime. Over 2,000 vendors of rocks, minerals, fossils and finished goods from around the globe sell to anyone with money to spend.

It's warm in Quartzite during winter and offers pretty inexpensive camping. But there's another more important reason people descend on Quartzsite in droves, especially during January and February, and it doesn't have anything to do with the weather. In fact, the reason has more to do with geology than anything else.

If you don’t mind a little dirt, sunshine, and the outdoors – love rocks – and want to spend some money on fantastic one of a kind items go to Quartzsite. Often you are buying from the original miner, or owner of a family claim. You will find many different languages, religons, nationalities and folks with a love of rocks and the natural world. This is an experience for the true rock hound. Go once and you’ll be hooked.
