My very own rock collection!
Today was the coolest. I got to go help some people from the UVU Earth Science Department pack up a bunch of museum-quality rocks that a lady donated. Then I got to pick out what I wanted from the rest of the collection (the NOT museum quality). I got some awesome stuff! A few of them I haven't identified yet, so hoping to take those in to school and get someone to help me with it. But I got some great rocks and minerals- pyrite, quartz, coal, pumice, granite, galena, malachite (I think), mica, gypsum, petrified wood and geodes. SO dang cool. I need to go find myself some Halite at Great Salt Lake this week to add to the collection. I think I've just created a monster- the start of a collection means I'll now be an official rock hound whenever I'm out. Yippee! :) Oh oh, and I got some bleached coral as well. :)
