Happy Holidays from Van Wickle and the Art Montgomery Mineral Museum. This semester the halls have felt particularly empty and I thought a fun way to bring some holiday cheer and remind everyone of our amazing mineral collection that creates the atmosphere in Van Wickle we all know and love would be to have a mineral identification contest. I have set up a holiday exhibit of red, green, and gold minerals from our collection in the spirit of the season. Test your mineral identification knowledge and try to identify all 16 minerals pictured. The person who correctly identifies the most minerals will receive a prize (and bragging rights of course). Please submit your entry by December 24th to the following link:
Best wishes,
Brian Lejeune
