Let Imagination and Mother Nature Be Your Guide

In this book you can "color-in" and explore the amazing world of rocks, minerals and crystals. The images pictured are world class examples of one-of-a-kind minerals. You can learn how to start a rock collection, as well as discover the many interesting facts, uses and properties of minerals and crystals.

Notice the color examples of the mineral specimens found on the reverse side of the front and back covers? This is how these minerals are colored by nature. You can use these natural colors as a guide, or you can experiment like Mother Nature herself with your own innovative variety of colors for each mineral image.

The Colorful History of Rock and Mineral Collecting

Rock and Mineral collecting is a fun and fascinating way to learn about the world around us!

The practice of collecting rocks and minerals has been around for a very long time. The earliest written record of rock and mineral collecting comes from ancient Egypt where minerals were collected for cosmetic and medicinal purposes.

Today, people collect rocks and minerals for many reasons...shape, chemical structure, collectible value...but mostly it's because they are so beautiful to see!
