Did you know minerals are used to manufacture everything from automobiles to toothpaste? How about when you watch fireworks explode so colorfully in the evening sky, ever wonder where the color comes from? Minerals! Each basic color in a fireworks display comes from a specific mineral or compound. Join us July 12 and learn about the minerals that create the bright greens, deep reds, cool blues and golden yellows seen in fireworks displays. AND Children – dig for rocks in our rock yard – just like a real rock hound! Find a delightful mix of colorful jasper, agates, obsidian, and many other great rocks, for just 25 cents per pound. Although classes are geared to elementary school aged children, all ages are welcome. Classes every hour – first Class, 10am; last class, 3pm.
