Dugway Geode Beds, Utah, USA

The Dugway Geode beds are on public land with some private quarries.  You can hunt for geodes on the public land or pay a small fee per group ($30-100, depending on your take) to one of the private quarries who help you out by uncovering the veins of geodes below the surface.

We visited on a day that one of the companies was making their weekly dig to retrieve geodes for their rock shop.  We had a nice talk with the proprietor.  Only a few years ago, anyone could just walk in and dig around their quarry.  Unfortunately, a series of acts of vandalism and other problems has forced the owners to carry insurance which now requires the public to pay a fee to dig in their private quarry.

I've read elsewhere that some of the geodes glow when in black light.  Very cool!

    That looks so much fun, and how different from hunting for the sedimentary variety of geodes found in Indiana. There you are in the woods, along creeks, streams, and rivers. Good of the property owners to still allow rockhounds despite the need for insurance these days.
