    Other Hobby--Minerals

    Hey Guys,
    I thought that I'd post a pic from my other hobby--collecting minerals. This is actually a micromount, a mineral mounted in a space less than 1" in size, requiring magnification. See if you can guess what it is! I'll provide more details if anyone is interested. Oh and thanks to Andrew for helping me to get the pic here!!
    My chicken legs taste like chicken--only less meaty.

    A rock!





    My plant growing uncle was also a big rock and mineral collector. As a kid I loved looking at his mineral collection. I can't identify many minerals though.

    I saw the topic starter (JBL) and thought wow that's a name I have not seen in a long time.
    Saw you had a thread on 5/12 reintroducing yourself... never saw the post.

    Sorry that the trip to the Pine Barrens made you go undercover for so long. Guess I will not tell you the 6th annual trip is coming up in July. LOL

    Welcome back.

    Could it be copper? The only other green rock I can think of is Malachite, but that isn't showing any striping...
