This show and tell display had many outstanding examples including a crystal quartz skull, a green metallic Malachite from the Congo, rocks with magnetic tendencies, a meteorite, rocks with fossils of leaves, trilobites, bones, portions of petrified wood, Trinitite which is radioactive, unusual shaped geodes, and even rocks that mimicked faces because of an eye, a mouth or even an ear placed in just the right spot.
The most interesting rocks were brought by the youngest members of the rock club.
