Mineral Mondays

Is it quartz, or quartzite? What’s the difference between a rock and a mineral? Or between a gem and a mineral? And just how old is that fossil? Find out from the experts what minerals, rocks or fossils are hiding in your collection. This free event occurs from 2 to 5 p.m. on the first Monday of each month at  New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science, 1801 Mountain Road NW. For more information, go to nmnaturalhistory.org.
