This is a NEW SHOW for us, and we'll be sharing the Durango Meeting Room with Dan's Used Rocks.For this show we are featuring several flats of material that we obtained on our trip to Bulgaria last fall. Specimens include, sphalerite (cleophane & marmatite), galena, quartz, and more. We’ll have lots of other new mineral specimens from China, Africa, Mexico, and other locations. We’ll have lots of fossils including Megalodon shark teeth, trilobites, ammonites, and more! We will also be featuring specimens from our personal collection.
