Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
Great photos, lovely displaysBrings my memory back to the Rock and Gem Magazine, and the beautiful photos there.
I always enjoy mineral displays.
Albert Einstein: "Diamonds don´t shine, they reflect" :-)
So beautiful in their raw state
Great,, I love that green one in the midst.
@Maywyn: thank you!@David: I do too.@Iris: a good quote.@Susie: definitely.@Aritha: so do I.
I'm more of an emerald gal William 😉 it's amazing the difference a bit of polishing makes 💎
I always had an interest in geology. Love those displays.
Always fascinating to see what earth is hiding.
I love seeing these in displays, and when I leave I quickly forget them. If I were mining for rubys and emeralds (which do exist in the mountains of Western North Carolina) I wouldn't know what to look for!
I remember the first book I received from my brother in San Diego was "Rocks and Minerals". Though I grew up to be a Geography geek, Geology will always have a place in my heart, especially seeing rocks in their rawest forms just as what you shared us! Love it!
Thank you for another interesting post, this one about minerals and gems.
I see some interesting gemstones here.
My grandparents were rock hunters...I went on a few trips with them...it was a neat experience!
They are richly varied indeed and so beautiful! I enjoyed this exhibit very much :-)
This I would love to see!
Lovely series of mineral photos ~ Keep Calm and Be Well,A ShutterBug Explores,aka (A Creative Harbor)
Nice series of mineral displays.
...I had to do it all over again, I would like to be a geologist.
Lots of interesting things about gems. we learn so much about our earth.
This is great. I have always enjoyed going to the Natural History Museum and seeing all kinds of rocks and crystals. Thanks so much!
So many beautiful gems.
I liked the geodes with other several crystals included.

I don't know much about rocks but I love looking at them. I think I'd like this gallery very much.
Displays like this are wonderful and fascinating.
Diamonds may be a girl's best friend but this concert is all rock.
Now your talking ! I love this. Every child and adults looked for rocks and minerals when I was growing up. They had Rock Tumblers grinding away with water and sand in the garages and every rock came out beautiful.How are you ? Stay well.parsnip
Love the mineral display.All the best Jan
