That is only a hobby I do in the winter so it is always dark. I know taking pictures of rocks is not riveting photography, but it takes good lighting. I use simple clip on lights with LED bulbs. No shadow is no shadow, it does not have to be fancy.
I spared you a picture of a rock, and substituted a picture I took of my cat. (You are welcome) :-)
