See minerals through the microscope this Saturday at Tellus Museum

November 16, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

There’s more to minerals than meets the (naked) eye. This weekend, you can get a glimpse of what some of the world’s smallest gems look like under a microscope.

The Tellus Museum will hold its first Micromount Gathering, a get-together for scientists and mineral enthusiasts, this Saturday from 1-5 p.m.

The event begins with a lecture by museum curator Julian Gray, who will talk about the hobby of collecting and studying these microscopic minerals. Then, from 2-5 p.m., visitors can see tiny minerals for themselves.

The event is included in the regular price of admission to the museum.

If you’re already a micromount hobbyist, contact the museum to see if you can display your collection.
