I collect fossils. I really like the bugs in amber and thought about getting a piece or 2 as I do not have any. I like to find my own rather then buying them. There is aways an excitement when you find a nice piece.
I did some research last year and they are a few sites in NJ that people have collect amber from.
I posted this some time ago here, but here's link to some of my fossil pictures. (Not 56K friendly)
