Are there any places near Las Vegas, NV that I can search for geodes and gems?

Hi Jeff,
I guess that depends on how close 'close' is. When I think of Nevada, I think of Opals.

It's not cheap, but you can find some real treasures, and for you, northern Nevada might be a day trip. Then there are all the rockhounding treasures across the border in Arizona, Idaho, Oregon. Right in the local Las Vegas area, I'm not sure.

Yea its about an 8 hour drive from Vegas, I just dont trust my car to make that far, last thing I need is to break down in the middle of the desert. I'll probably check out Arizona first.
