Our four-part evening program, Amazing Minerals, was so popular we added another class. This one will be on Fridays in April at 10:00 a.m.

Pick up any rock and look closely. It is made of minerals–naturally occurring solids with definite chemical composition.

Geologist Bruce Baty will introduce you to a number of amazing rock-forming and ore minerals during this four-part series. Discover their properties and local distribution. Experiment with our large collection of mineral specimens. Learn how to identify minerals based on a set of clues: crystal shape, hardness, streak, specific gravity, fracture, and luster.

The series includes lectures and hands-on activities to best engage your geological interest. Amaze yourself, your family and friends as you find minerals wherever you go!

Dates: April 6, 13, 20, 27

10:00-11:30 a.m.

Cost: $30 MNHC members/$35 non-members
