We have met many collectors, curators, geologists, mineralogists, gemologists, photographers, field collectors and others interested in minerals as we travel to shows around the country. It is clear that you have lots to teach and we have lots to learn. Some of it is pretty technical, some is basic survival, such as a "how to survive a mineral club field trip" guide. Some of you travel to exotic places when you hear of a new find, or you may be the "finder". These are events and topics of interest; we want to know about them so that we can share the knowledge and information with others. Please send your articles to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get them posted for all to voraciously devour!
Wendell Wilson, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Mineralogical Record has allowed Stonetrust to republish an important article from 1977 that, over thirty years later, sends a powerful message. We are appreciative of his support and generosity! Click the link below to revisit the article, or to read it for the first time.....
