This page will explore places I have collected and explored that tell a geological story. Many of the mineral localities were the basis of articles in Mineral News. Those articles and images will be added as time allows. Come back and see more. Scenes include: Natural Areas (Mountains, Canyons, etc.) Weathering outcrop of granite in central Colorado surround by scrub Caves Stalactites & stalagmites in Raymond Cave, Breckinridge Co., KY. Roadcuts and Quarries (collecting areas or places with interesting features exposed by blasting / construction) I’m visiting the Annabel Lee fluorite mine in Hardin Co., IL, May 1987. Looking at fluorite crystal pockets 967 feet below the surface. Chris Anderson photo.
