Is it quartz or quartzite? What is the difference between a rock and a mineral? Or between a gem and mineral? Just how old is that fossil? Find out from the experts what minerals, rocks, or fossils are hiding in your collection.
This FREE event is your chance to talk with the experts and find out what hidden “gems” you have found.
