Activities

Activities are the fun things we do as a club, such as mineral theme nights, guest speakers, and field trips. This section of the web site is meant to both promote upcoming activities and be a record of past events.

In recent years we've had presentations on global positioning systems, mineral preparation, crystallography, pseudomorphs, fossils of Blue Beach, fluorescent minerals, the Pinch Mineral Collection, minerals from Italy, Illinois fluorite, geology of the southwest U.S.A., and caves of West Virginia; had a tour of the N.S. Museum's mineral collection; as well as held several mineral auctions and watched videos about dinosaurs and caves.
