Dynamics

The forces of the planet result in the formation of rock in different ways, including in magmatic rocks.


Some of the specimens in these display cases have surprisingly rich colours, or fascinating textures.


The process of sedimentary rocks, along with samples of them, are explored here.


Evaporites are such a type. Samples of them are beneath this panel.
