We have used the books listed below and it has been so much fun hunting for rocks in this area. Even though some of the books are older, they still have great information.

The only problem you might run into is if a housing development has been built on the rock hounding spot the book mentions. We have not ran into this problem yet, if you do just look around the area because most rock hounding areas are more than just small pockets.
