Mineral Identification - Marsha Harmon
Students can expect to collect rocks in nature 4 full days, observe wonderful area museums, work a sluice mine, learn to pan gold in the stream, and learn the basics of mineral identification as it applies to most locations. WNC specimens are not limited to but include ruby, sapphire, garnets, smaragdite, gold, quartz, moonstone, feldspar and staurolite. Bagged lunches will be provided by the cafeteria. Larger classes may require additional transportation at which time gas will be paid for by the class. Class fee covers everything except a rock hammer, wading boots or water shoes, an old towel, entry into a museum $9 and a $10 bucket from the sluice mine.
