Did you know minerals are the building block of the entire Universe?

The iron in hematite, in spinach and in the hemoglobin in our blood is all the same. Just like the calcium in sea shells, in milk and in our bones. Did you know some rocks glow in the dark? Learn more about minerals in this beautiful and colorful exhibit that displays over 60 different types of minerals, rocks and ammonites. See pyrite or fool’s gold, opal, copper, malachite, halite, quartz, azurite, and sulfur, just to name a few! You will even be able to touch real lava and make a “volcano” erupt to see how new rocks and land masses are formed!

The exhibits in this display were provided by the Broward College Graves Museum Collection – Carol Jacobs Mineral and Ammonite Collection.
