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!

this display were provided by the Broward College Graves
