2023 in Rocks
From left to right:
Fossilized Sharks' Teeth and Ray Dental Plate Fragments (Alabama): The pointy ones are the sharks' teeth and the rectangular ones are the ray "teeth".
Geode Fragment (Tennessee): This specimen is a piece of a geode that had already broken off before it was collected. The crystals inside are quartz.
Glass Beads (Georgia): These lampwork glass beads were made by an SFMS club member who had never made beads before.
Mineral Sand (Georgia): This sand contains various minerals including quartz, garnets, and magnetite. The colors and shapes are fun to look at under magnification.
