I'm interested in finding a place to hunt for geodes near Nashville. Could you recommend some sites.

There are geodes to be found around Dale Hollow Lake, but to my understanding, it is mostly during low water months, (winter) when you can find them. As for specific sites on the Lake to find them, someone with personal experience will have to supply that info.
Here is a website that gives the lake level. http://dalehollow.uslakes.info/Level.asp).
Any level around 640 feet is good. (or so I've been told)

there are geodes in several areas around- east and south for sure - Nashville. My husband and I began our rockhounding adventures with the field trip report in my first issue of Rock and Gem magazine (Feb 2002) that told about geodes south of Nashville - it was quite the adventure trying to follow the directions given but we managed to get there and find a few. I've looked but am unable to get my hands on the magazine right now, no doubt still in storage since our big move to Missouri but you might see if you can get a copy of that back issue from their website. I also know there are farms over near Livingston, TN to the east that allow clubs to do field trips on them but I do not have contact info - you should look into joining a club or two in the general area. Good luck, Docia

Hi Robbin,

Well here goes for what I have on TN Geodes:

The best place in Middle TN is probably near Woodbury in Cannon County. There are quartz geodes there.

Contact Steve White at: [EMAIL=steven@rollinstonerock.com ]steven@rollinstonerock.com [/EMAIL] He charges $1.50 a pound. He is near Smithville, TN I hope this helps you out.
