Looking for places we might hunt for some of the Round Rocks near Osceola. Rock collecting is a family hobby of ours. Will pay for the privilege. We live in the Winfield, Mo. area. Will provide waivers and release of liability.

Thanks, Darryl

Hello Darryl, the round rocks your talking about, do you mean the ones they call Geo's? If so, you can find plenty of them just laying along the road at times if you drive north on Hwy.61 towards Canton and Palmyra. Friends of mine who live up in that area say it isn't anything surprizing to run across them all the time. Hope this helps.

There are some rocks from around Osceola that are not Geod's. I was told they were volcanic. I would like to have some as well.

I have 25 acres in Osceola Mo. 64776, and a building in town. Also have been collecting round rocks and fossils before they found out a METEORITE hit in the area. The fossils are amazing, and educational. You can actually find fossils that aren"t recorded as to what they are. Geologist and palentologist will have to write a new book on what will be discovered in the area. When the meteorite hit, they call it a duck soup occurance. Duck soup meaning, when the huge catasrophic event happened, melting of rock and substances were blown up, and when it all came back down, it sealed the area, and everything in the area is an amazing wonder. You have well preserved fossils, that you can see. You may not know what they are, because they are newly discovered fossils. You have to open your mind, and realize alot of the things you find in Osceola area have never been discovered. So there is little , or no information on what they are. It's like trying to read a page in the worlds history. It's there, you just have to keep an open mind on what you are seeing. I have noticed the rounds are not as plentiful as they used to be. I would say, eventually they will be hard to find. Osceola area is definitely a place to discover many wonders. You'll love it, if your interested in earths history. There is alot of stories in these rocks, yet to be told. antiokly@gmail.com

The stories are in the rocks, we just have to be capable of being open minded enough to read them.
