And the minerals he collected and saw!! Blue Apatite, Scapolite, Sphene, Morganite, Rubellite, Aquamarine, Smoky Quartz, Topaz, Amazonite, Golden Beryl and more.

HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL AT THE MEETING!
I hope everyone had a great holiday season and glad to be back in school. This month we will investigate sedimentary environments and what stories fossils tell how they got there. We will look at marine environments and see if certain fossils reveal something about their demise and whether they are dead carcasses or actual environments they died in. This will be a CSI investigation of "who done it". Next month, month we will look to see mineral environments reveal similar stories. Don't forget to bring a specimen for our "show and tell" and I look forward to see everyone back.
REFRESHMENTS WILL BE SERVED AFTER A BRIEF BUSINESS MEETING. CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE REFRESHMENT TABLE ALWAYS WELCOME! NO PEANUT PRODUCTS, PLEASE.
