Do Volcanos Make Minerals?
Ted will talk about his travels through Italy, looking for minerals and exploring volcanoes along the way. Naples, Mt. Vesuvius, Stromboli, Volcano, and Lipari are some of the places he visited. Ted’s interest in minerals started at age 11 in the 1960’s in Paterson, New Jersey. He has a keen interest in history and is an avid traveler. Has has leaned much about the geology, minerals, natural history, and culture of the countries he has traveled to. He specializes in New England minerals, and pegmatite minerals of the world. Ted became a mineral dealer in 1984 to cater to and support his passion.
The May Pebble Pup meeting will cover opalized fossils. A recent mosasaur leg bone was found in Australia and sold for over $1 million. Although I do not have any of these priceless treasures, we will talk about how they form and give off the spectacular colors and see some of the best specimens on the market. Don’t forget to bring a specimen for show and tell and welcome to new members I met at the show. Don't forget to bring a rock, mineral or fossil for us to identify and talk about. See you there and a welcome to prospective members I met at the show.
REFRESHMENTS WILL BE SERVED AFTER A BRIEF BUSINESS MEETING. CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE REFRESHMENT TABLE ALWAYS WELCOME! NO PEANUT PRODUCTS, PLEASE.
