      Mineral Madness Sale and Family Fun

      Dig into the rockin’ world of minerals with fun hands-on activities for families. Shop for your own mineral and fossil treasures at rock-bottom prices! Thousands of mineral specimens for sale for the novice to the serious collector. The sale showcases Arizona, New Mexico and Mexico minerals with a selection of minerals and fossils from around the world as well. Bargain hunters will find specimens for as little as 50 cents!

      Specials at the sale this year:
      • New gem stone donations
      • Fluorescent minerals
      • Quartz crystals and chalcedony
      • Fossilized Shark Poop (Coprolites)
      • “Decorator” Rock
      During the weekend you can visit geology and fossil activity stations around the Museum grounds, where children can collect a free rock or mineral specimen in their own egg-carton collection box.
      Rock Readings!
      Saturday and Sunday 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., Monday 1:00 to 2:00 p.m.
      Do you or someone in your family like to collect rocks or minerals? Do you have some that mystify you? Every specimen has a story to tell. Bring in one, and learn from our Curator — what it’s called, how it formed, and why it’s special. We’ll help you build a story around your treasure.
