CLASSIC MINES AND MINERALS OF NORWAY
 
Presented by: Ted Johnson
 
Norway has been mining its resources for centuries.  Specimens from these classic sites have found their way into museums and collections throughout Europe, the USA, and maybe your collection.  Ted will discuss the geography, commercial mines and quarries of Norway (feldspar, mica, granite, & rare earth minerals), classic pegmaties of Norway and their similarity to New England pegmatites, and gemstones such as cordierite.  Ted has been a mineral dealer at our show for many years and we welcome him back once again as a speaker at our meeting.

Reefs and how they have changed in the last billion years 

 

Reefs were among the first habitats for life on earth, but have changed drastically since. We hear of the perils of global warming and plastic pollution in our oceans. This could be the end of our coral seas. What is our recourse to saving these? Don't forget a mineral specimen for "show-n-tell" and Iook forward to seeing every one.
