Mr "Real Rock Hound", you're somehow incorrect.

1) The Bureau of Land Management does not charge fees for collection of small, non-commercial quantities of rock taken by rockhounds in pursuit of their hobby. Gathering or collecting for the purpose of sale or barter is prohibited, unless especially authorized.
Rockhounds are welcome to collect rocks and gemstones from most federal lands, with some exceptions.

2) Petroglyphs, human remains, dwellings, and artifacts of Native American cultures are protected by law.

3) Permits are required for the collection of any artifacts, vertebrates and fossils. Permits are granted only to qualified institutions for bona fide scientific research, and are not issued to casual recreationists.

4) PhD is not a permit.
