Hunt for Treasure with a Rock and Gem Scoop

by MaggiePowell

Beach Combing and treasure hunting is so much easier with this handy Rock and Gem Scoop. Add it to your Rockhound supplies, no more bending and stooping!

I love Beachcombing but my back can't take the constant stooping. This Treasure and Gem Scoop is the perfect solution, and has become one of my favorite Rockhounding Supplies.

My original Treasure Scoop came from a little rock store in Newport, Oregon. It's sturdy and strong, and I still use it often. Since then I've bought others for fellow rockhounds and beach combers like me.

This seemingly simple tool is a long metal walking stick with a pointed tip and comfort handle. What makes it special is the scoop at the bottom. Perfect for lifting up whatever you find.

If you love beachcombing, rockhounding, or just like to walk around town with a strong walking stick, a Treasure and Gem Scoop is for you.

I Love Hunting For Treasure

rocksA Treasure Scoop is great for a variety of outdoor uses. Use it for beachcombing or rockhounding. Take it along on hikes to keep your balance. Use it to push aside bushes or poke under logs on the trail. I love it because I don't have to bend over for every shiny object I spot. 

The handle makes it comfortable to hold while walking, and you can strap it to your wrist so it doesn't fall. The scoop is about the size of a grown man's palm, and has cuts in it to allow sand and water to fall through. The Treasure and Gem Scoop is availible in both 36" and a long handled 42" inch versions, so you can choose a length that is good for you. The spike on the end is great for breaking up rocks or keeping balance while you walk. 

The Treasure Scoop, originally made by Eastwing, is now made by Fundamental Rockhound. Thankfully, they maintain the same high quality manufacturing standards, so you know that you are getting a great product. It is a central part of my rockhound kit.

Why Use a Treasure Scoop?

Rockhounding or Beachcombing Made Easier

-Primarily to pick up shiny or interesting Treasure that you find on the Beach or Trail.

-Save your back from the Beach Combing Stoop.

-Keep your balance on uneven or rocky trails.

-Sweep the trail ahead to avoid snakes or other creepy things.

-Makes a good defensive weapon if you are walking in wild areas.

-I keep mine hanging near the front door... just in case

I'm one of those people who can't take a walk without finding some sort of shiny or interesting object to stick in my pocket.... The scoop makes it far too easy to pick new things up.

Ragtimelil on 09/05/2013

I love it! I never had heard about these. I'm going to check it out. Thanks!

MaggiePowell on 09/02/2013

Isn't it awful? I can no longer spend the day stooping and finding... kills my knees.

kimbesa on 09/02/2013

I can certainly use that when I go to the lake, or any other place I'm looking for pretty rocks. This old bod cannot do things the same as it used to.

MaggiePowell on 09/02/2013

this has been a definite back and knee saver for me

This looks like a great idea. I don't mind bending over occasionally but too much squatting down hurts so this looks like a great gadget to have.

MaggiePowell on 08/31/2013

My mom uses hers for a walking stick. It's lightweight and sturdy, and that point on the bottom helps with stability.

MaggiePowell on 08/31/2013

Isn't it? It's one of those "why didn't I think of that" tools.

dustytoes on 08/31/2013

I like the idea of a gem scoop, but I don't really mind bending over. I think it would be especially handy on a trail. Maybe it could double as a walking stick too.

KathleenDuffy on 08/31/2013

That's a brilliant idea!
