Attendees at a previous Geology Club sale.
The Western Nevada College Geology Club's sixth annual Rock, Mineral and Fossil Sale will be from 2 to 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 2 in Room 322 of the Bristlecone Building on the Carson City campus.
Come early for the best selection.
“We have rock, mineral, fossil, gem and shell specimens from all over the world,” said Professor Winnie Kortemeier, club adviser, who estimates that more than 1,000 samples will be part of the sale.
New this year are selenite crystals, as well as showy copper ore from Nevada.
“Geology samples make great Christmas gifts for kids and adults alike,” Kortemeier said. “And these beautiful samples need homes for the holidays.”
Kortemeier said the sale is important to the club to help establish an endowed scholarship for students interested in the geosciences.
