Hello! My name is Adrienne McElwain I am the proud daughter of Richard Dalrymple the world-famous rock hound, and Author of Utah's Gems. I grew up in a rock shop and through spending a lifetime playing in the dirt I discovered my love and passion for rocks and minerals. I now teach geology classes online, at local co-ops, in public schools, and around the country as a guest speaker. I have had the great privilege to go rockhounding in over a dozen countries on five continents and am expanding that every year. A year ago I hired a friend Ron Garza to help film and capture my amazing rockhounding experiences, and together we are growing and expanding The Crystal Festival! In 2023 we are going to expand the festival into new cities and add additional dates, as well as focus on the Children's Corner to create an unbeatable experience for our Jr. Rockhounds. Watch our Blog, Facebook, and our YouTube for new and exciting adventures, and new ways to learn about Rocks & Minerals!
