Rocks, Rocks and More Rocks

My grandson, Aaron, is doing this blog. He’s 8 years old and likes rocks, really likes rocks! Grandma has ROCKS!

I keep my rocks in these containers

Here’s more pictures of some of my rocks.

This is tiger eye and it’s tumbled.

Amethyst is on the left and fluorspar on the right

Left is pink selenite and the other is selenite

Bottom left horned coral, upper left sea urchin and right is a crinoid

Petrified driftwood from Kansas

Petrified driftwood is rare because instead of rotting, the wood got fossilized.

Using Grandma’s stereo microscope

Part cracked geode. Picture taken through microscope

Hunting for sharks’ teeth in Dakota matrix from Kansas

I found more shark teeth than Grandma did

  2. Really nice. The sea urchin and crinoid look like bits of ancient architecture.
